The task:

Our client, a chief administrative body, was carrying out a major development planning and  programming project. The client wanted a foresight methodology to be used in order to achieve more objective results but did not point to a specifics.

Our solution:

The study designed by 4CF involved the participation of a few dozen experts, some of whom were the client’s representatives, while others represented subordinate institutions or other state authorities. For the needs of this complex project, we implemented the HalnyX Delphi Platform. Its use allowed for the identification and prioritization of potential global security crises along with their implications for Poland’s internal affairs. The client used the platform for a real-time Delphi study and for real-time mapping, the latter being a unique function on a worldwide scale, offered solely by the HalnyX platform.  

The effects from the client’s perspective:

The client received an objective report prepared in a very short time (3 weeks). It contained the answers to key questions, answers which were developed based on the extensive knowledge of several dozen experts from various levels of departmental hierarchy as well as from outside institutions. The report constituted a basis for scenarios which were later utilised in a decision-making game carried out with the aid of 4CF experts.
