If you want to become more anticipatory, buy yourself the time to respond, develop your change muscle, and increase the quality of your strategy development, here are the scenario prompts for 23 May 2023. Scenario prompts are the first step of strategy development. If you want to improve your own strategic planning abilities, we have developed a simple four-step programme.

Citizenship, minerals, low code platforms, the perils of prudence, humanoid bots, AI as debt collectors, carebots in Japan, nano generators, bio-fertilisers in Brazil and generative design.
How Citizenship is at the Heart of Self-Governance
Citizenship is more than leadership. It’s about belonging. It replaces the autonomous individual (like the vaunted ‘leader’) with the more nuanced story of a community member.
The Old Future Is Gone, and Technology Won’t Bring It Back
In the quest for sufficient mineral resources to make green dreams come true, affluent societies will become more dependent on an even more technologically complex.
Low-code platforms mean anyone can be a developer — and maybe a data scientist, too
Micro innovations added up to between £8m and £10m in cost efficiencies and savings through 2022. Have a look at www.agilepoint.com (a client of mine).
The Perils of Prudence
Sometimes, caution is the riskiest strategy of all
Silicon Valley Is Reviving the Dream of General-Purpose Humanoid Robots
The sci-fi vision of a general-purpose humanoid robot seems to be edging closer.
Cursed new AI calls debtors to hassle them for money

Inside Japan’s long experiment in automating elder care
A growing body of evidence is finding that robots tend to end up creating more work for caregivers. Very interesting.
New piezoelectric material converts vibrations into electricity
In the future, integrating nanogenerators with various devices could help generate power from vibrations of the device.
A 60-year experiment points to the success of biofertilizers as an alternative to synthetic nitrogen
Brazil has saved billions in fertilizer costs and averted the release of millions of tons of carbon by inoculating soybeans with soil microbes.
Unleashing Creativity: The Power of Generative Furniture Design
Generative design has the potential to revolutionize not only the design industry but our everyday lives as well.
