Emerged from call for preferred images of the future in The Image of the Future by Polak, and developed as a method by various people, including Elise Boulding, visioning techniques can be used in all steps of a foresight process. Reasons to use them include:

  • provoking conversation and debate about the future;
  • embedding and communicating foresight in a startling manner;
  • stimulating action in the real world.

Elements of visioning to shape a foresight process could include:
1) Level of contextualization: how detailed is the context with regard to a specific culture, client, environment?
2) Level of finalization: how realistic is the visualization, how roughly drawn?
3) Degree and nature of participation of users/people: at which point do they participate in the design of the visualization?
