Planning Committee Meeting, March 14-15, 2002

David Harries, Vice-President of Alliance for Capitalizing on Change  represented the upcoming Canadian Node. Representing the newest organization joining the MP network, David focused on introducing the organization and its goals along with their interest and projected activities as a future Node.

Alliance for Capitalizing on Change


Only by learning to capitalize on change will we be able to replace our fear with the justifiable confidence that we are able to influence the shape of the future by making sound strategic decisions today.

Until now, no organization has been solely dedicated to encouraging and enabling all of us to learn to understand and capitalize on change and to do so in a holistic manner.

Capitalizing on change requires...

Legitimacy – a supportive community which openly values and advocates for strategic foresight and courageous action.

Safe and reliable spaces for engaging in ongoing strategic dialogue and learning with others who share our commitments. This work cannot be done alone.

Access to the best practitioners and researchers from around the world and to their insights into the emerging character and requirements of the 21st Century.

Thus The Alliance...

Canada's only body solely designed to make it easier for all interested persons and organizations to explore, understand and capitalize on change and, thus, influence the shape of their future.

What is the Alliance?

The Alliance is unique.
