Foresight Resources

AGRiP members are constantly looking ahead to identify trends, topics and issues that will have impact. We call this “foresight.”

AGRiP Residents provide foresight guidance and expertise by blending specialized knowledge with pool-specific details, to produce resources that foster practical planning and prudent, actionable steps.

Strategic Foresight

Strategic foresight resources help pools spot future trends with more clarity.

This set of materials will help pool governing bodies and staff to thoughtfully identify, examine and prepare for the forces shaping change in public entity pooling and recognize biases that can hinder progress. Use these tools to guide the next steps in creating a future-forward organization.

Generational Foresight

Generational foresight resources teach pools how to prepare for a workplace and membership environment with multiple generations.

These materials will help pools recruit and retain valuable staffing resources, considering workplace and cultural changes necessary to continue successful operations.   Generational foresight can also help pools prepare for changes in membership needs and expectations, and claim patterns.  Finally, generational resources can be key to a pool recruiting the right balance of skills on its governing body.
