Attempts to show how futures thinking can affect your future – personally, professionally, and socially – in fact, across every aspect of our life. What if we had known the social changes brought about by the Vietnam war ahead of time? What about the Computer Age? Not to mention by cell phones? And perhaps most notably the dramatic changes that stemmed from the attacks on 9/11/2001? Many argue that these were life-altering watershed events, and, in their aftermath, we changed our entire approach to life - personal, professional, social and so on as a result of these events This paper hopes to show how anticipating the future in a logical, coordinated and intelligent manner can prepare you for the coming challenges – to deal with the waxing, waning and, in fact, changing labor pool and skill sets needed. We hope this is instructive in assisting you to learn to react to coming events and not to passing crises. We want you to anticipate the coming changes on the legal horizon, to the creation of unfunded mandates and changes in funding sources. We want you to begin examining whatever issue is at hand by looking at trends and how they will affect you, your job, your people and your agency.
