Description

"This memoir of the life of Napier Collyns is the biography of the emergence of a new way of thinking about the future, an idea which has had a profound effect on the way organisations understand themselves as engines of continuous adaptation, and the way in which leadership approaches the management of risk and resilience over the long term. Napier in his various incarnations at Shell, subsequently at GBN, and more broadly still has been the great witness and facilitator of every nuance of this evolution. This memoir of a man and an idea is to honour his role as agitator, mentor, supporter, and, perhaps above all, as connector and conductor-in-chief of people and ideas in many different walks of life."--From the Foreword by Leslie Dighton *** Napier Collyns was at the heart of the small group of planners and forecasters at Shell (which included Pierre Wack, Herman Kahn, and Peter Schwartz) who invented and pioneered scenario planning. Later he was part of the small group who founded the massively influential Global Business Network (GBN). He also worked for much of his later professional life, in and out of the limelight, helping to get a surprising number of highly influential books written and published on both sides of the Atlantic. He was also a founder member of International Futures Forum. [Subject: Business Studies, Memoir]
