Abstract

Purpose of the paper: To introduce an innovative methodology for foresight analysis and to align this to the needs of the new economic context in relation also to social and technological aspects.
Methodology: Starting from a literary review on the foresight topics we elaborated an innovative methodology that was applied to a specific study in boating sector.
Findings: Through foresight exercise we elaborated Road Maps which can support effectively economic operators and institutions in setting their strategies and using local resources.
Research limits: Being Road Maps still in progress, it was not possible to verify if the output of our foresight exercise is adequate to the objectives of our research. Such limits are connected to this particular type of methodology which aim is not to find solutions but to stimulate proactive behaviors.
Practical implications: The methodology represents a very detailed guide for decision maker s to develop a foresight exercise and specific Road Maps.
Originality of the paper: The methodology approach we propose for foresight exercise brings a consistent innovation to the traditional technological approach, taking into account social aspect, too.
