Inspiration from the future is about being inspired by the future and using this inspiration for the current challenge. In order to look far ahead mentally and to recharge your batteries with inspiration, you can watch a science fiction film on your own or in a team or read science fiction novels or comics. Especially films that have been around for years or decades offer exciting perspectives on how people saw the preview of the world back then and what might have become reality.

Films such as Space Ship Enterprise, Space Patrol Orion, The Jetsons or all James Bond films provide interesting food for thought and inspiration to set new goals and framework conditions.
And by the way, it is of course also a good measure for team development.
