Bigger Thinking for Smaller Enterprises: Co-Creating a Shared Vision of the Future for SMEs Future-Fit Business Benchmark - Evolution from Causing No Harm to Creating Systems Value

Bigger Thinking for Smaller Enterprises” encourages SMEs in Ontario to acknowledge the possibilities of the future of their organisation, align with other members’ mental models to co-create a desirable future, and use that vision to form the strategy required for its attainment. This project applies foresight methodology to address the challenge Ontario’s small and medium enterprises (SMEs) face regarding long-term strategic planning. Using a shared vision of the future as a means for transformational change, this work contributes to the practice of reverse-engineering futures and long-term strategic planning to improve Ontario’s economic resilience by focusing on its largest contributors. SME strategic planning processes were analysed and compared with needs to inform the design of a five-phase process, The Future Co-Creation Engagement, to lead partakers through the process of co-creating a long-term vision for the future of their organisation and strategizing its execution.

Roxanne is a Master of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation graduate and strategist who takes a “big picture” perspective to support sustainable and transformational change. She is adept at applying strategic foresight and design thinking skills to solve complex problems. Roxanne has worked and travelled in 15 different countries and is always looking for the next adventure.  

With a background in graphic design, Jyotish has had a successful career as a typeface designer, specialising in Indic scripts. After completing his undergraduate studies at the National Institute of Design, India he joined the Indian Type Foundry (ITF). During his four years at ITF, he has designed and collaborated on typeface design projects for the ITF’s font library and organisations such as Apple, Sony, Google fonts and Monotype Imaging. He was also a core team member for the India-based legal innovation startup, LawforMe. This organisation simplifies the conveyance of Indian laws and legal processes with the use of design and technology. Equipped with well-honed SFI skills, he is planning to take on complex problems facing the developing world especially in the field of healthcare, poverty alleviation, waste management and access to law.
