When asked on Twitter “Why” in response to me earning a certificate in Foresight I responded with this - To understand & maximize probable futures, analyze possible/alternative directions, & guide towards preferable futures. 
This reflects the Framework Foresight methodology analyzing the predictable or expected, the alternative and measurably likely, and the desired amongst those for our institution. 

In answer to “@gingerhwilliams” additional statement that “The last thing universities need to be doing is giving out certificates for foresight.” I say the strongest commonality all disciplines have is strategic planning, the need for preparing for multiple directions, and maximizing the identifiable trends and the less suspected changes. Providing formal multidisciplinary training in Foresight based on theory and practice is valuable in the university setting to the school and to the professional community.
