It’s a rapidly changing world out there
In a new reality where old plans and blueprints will get you nowhere, success is all about putting change at the heart of your business model, and embracing it.
Make uncertainty work for you
To remain in control of your future, your entire organization, from leadership to individual teams, will have to rethink, retool, and reprioritize on the go. This is what we mean by resilience, and what we think is needed in these unprecedented times – because only resilient organizations thrive in uncertainty.
Resilience: It’s time for courageous leadership and unprecedented moves
Never before has there been a higher demand for clarity and understanding what will come next – but that’s simply out of our reach. The times call for unprecedented actions and adaptability to open up paths to a positive future beyond the current haze.

TOOLS AND RESOURCES
Tools for Resilient Futures
In a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world, we need the capability to innovate, look around, identify emerging opportunities, and make better long-term decisions. Proactive futures thinking gives organizations a structured way to approach these issues.
Get the most out of remote work
We’re no strangers to remote work, but as the pandemic started, many awesome people at Futurice took it upon themselves to find ways to make working from home even more rewarding, efficient and enjoyable. Here’s what they came up with.
RESILIENCE IN PRACTICE
Finland’s largest newspaper Helsingin Sanomat and Futurice teamed up to build a service that gathers anonymous symptom reports from the general public to create situational awareness and help healthcare professionals understand the geographical spread of symptoms related to COVID-19 in Finland.
Pivoting into remote mode
When the pandemic worsened throughout Europe, more than 550 Futuriceans shifted into remote working mode overnight. Dozens of adjustable desks, office chairs, displays, and other supplies were delivered from our offices to our employees’ doorsteps to help them build proper remote work setups at home.
Fighting the good fight, one face shield at a time
In Sweden, we volunteered our 3D printer Berit to produce face shield parts to help protect healthcare professionals in the frontline of the crisis, as part of an effort coordinated by Stockholm Makerspace. The parts were distributed to hospitals throughout the country.
Sharing best practices and keeping morale up
To counter the adverse effects of being isolated from our colleagues for an extended period of time, we have set up new Slack channels and internal workshops for sharing best practices related to working from home. Remote afterwork beers have been organized to serve as alternatives to socializing at the office, and home-delivered chocolate care packages help keep spirits up during isolation.
