© European Communities, 2011 This poster describes the crowdsourced foresight process at Finpro, the Finnish Trade promotion organisation. It is a unique organisational model for building anticipatory competencies to manage change. Finpro as an organization Finpro is a global organisation with 375 employees, of which 250 people are working outside Finland in over 40 countries. Finpro is an association, owned by Finnish companies, where a main part of its funding comes from the Finnish government. The aim of Finpro is to help Finnish companies to be successful in global markets. One of the cornerstones in Finpros strategy is foresight activities, which is considered essential for Finnish companies to build both a strategic and a competitive edge for the future global environment. Foresight process at Finpro In Finpro every employee is involved in the foresight process. Being a distributed organisation, there are special challenges in crowdsourcing the future information. Because of this challenge, TrendWiki (product owned by Data Rangers Ltd), a proprietary tool, was developed as the foundation for Finpros foresight activities. This tool is especially designed for distributed organisations for collecting and visualising weak signals. Every Finpro employee has access to this user-friendly tool. All employees are trained and encouraged to enter weak and strong signals as they have observed in their respective countries or when travelling. There is no guideline for what kind of signals are collected: every signal is considered to be valuable. During last year, over 9000 signals of change were spotted by Finproners. A task for the Finpros dedicated foresight team is to analyse these signals. Bi-annually, potential emerging phenomena are identified by clustering the signals. The phenomena are used for Finlands key industrial clusters and for building a new and unique competitive edge for Finpros client companies. In order to emphasize foresights importance for business, an overview of the phenomena is also made publicly available. Finpro is not only interested in the broader view, but also in more focused technological changes. Signals are spotted from the viewpoints of technology, business as well as people and the society. We have proved that a holistic view provides a better indication of the forthcoming changes. Finpro works with Finnish companies to help them to better understand the future transformation. Especially, technology companies can benefit from the holistic approach of Finpros foresight activities. Case Fira Fira is a Finnish company working in the building sector. One of its products is parking garages. With the future of parking garages in mind, Fira asked Finpro to assist them in seeing new perspectives for the future. In the project, dedicated Finpro signal spotters for example from Japan, Holland and Brazil were looking for signals in the areas of business, technology and people and society for five months. These signals were analyzed by the team, and they were used in workshops with the client. The outcome of the project was new business concepts for Fira. The project helped the company to grasp a new and innovative business thinking in otherwise a very traditional business area.

Keep the original font colour (100c 80m 0y 0k). Keep the flush-right justification. Set it in Helvetica Rounded Bold Condensed, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana – plain or bold. Keep the original font body size (102 pt or, preferably,120 pt) and the title on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the title on more than one line only if unavoidable. 2.Poster Subtitle Replace the mock-up text of the poster subtitle (Place Your Poster Subtitle Here) with the text of your own subtitle. Keep the original font colour (black). Keep the flush-right justification. Set it in MetaPlusBook-Roman, if you own the typeface. Otherwise, in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana. Keep the original font body size (72 pt) and the subtitle on a single line whenever possible. Reduce the body size and/or set the subtitle on more than one line only if unavoidable. If your poster does not have a main subtitle, delete the subtitle mock-up text or its text-box altogether. 3.Poster Main Text and Illustrations Replace the mock-up text of the poster with your own text. Keep it within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes provided. Keep the original font colour (black). Should you need a second colour within your text, use the same one of the poster title (100c 80m 0y 0k). Keep the flush-left justification. Set the main text in MetaPlusBook-Roman and the section headings in MetaPlusBold-Roman, if you own the typefaces. Otherwise, the main text in Arial, Helvetica or Verdana, and the section headings in their respective bold weights. Adjust the font body size and leading to the needs of your own text, depending on its overall length, for optimal display and legibility. Should you need a second level of text, set it in a smaller body size than that of your main text (and, in the case of photo captions, in italics, too). Place your illustrations (pictures, graphs, etc.) within the boundaries of the two main-text boxes. Adjust your text-flow as needed. 4.Contact Box Replace the mock-up contents of the contact box with your own data. Keep the contact box in place if possible. Place it elsewhere only if unavoidable for layout reasons, but in that case try, at least, to align it with some main element of the poster. 5.Additional Logos Should you need to display additional logos (e.g., of partner organizations or universities), reduce or enlarge them to a height within those of the JRC logo and the Directorate or Institute logo. Place any additional logos on the bottom of the poster, evenly spaced between the JRC and (if there is one) the Directorate or Institute logo, and vertically centred with them. 2011 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE Crowdsourcing Weak Signals of Change in Institutional Environments – Case Finpro Niko Herlin Finpro Tel. +358403433342 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org@finpro.fi Figure: Annual foresight process of Finpron
