This paper offers an approach to address the absence of a measurement system for the futures / foresight discipline. The measurement system, based on a successful model used for other complex disciplines, provides a developmental approach for foresight practices. The Foresight Maturity Model (FMM) defines best practices for the foresight field and measures the competency of those practices. It’s intended to support practitioners as well as consumers of foresight services.
