Using the Three Horizons framework to support systemic design amidst a pandemic
The pilot described below was co-designed and co-facilitated by Gemma Drake and Emily Bazalgette
To get the most out of this post, we recommend watching economist Kate Raworth’s short video explaining the Three Horizons framework.
This blog post illustrates and champions the valueof using a systemic framework in long-term organisational thinking, alongside emergency contingency planning. I describe a pilot programme we ran May — August 2020, using Bill Sharpe’s Three Horizons model as a learning framework for future thinking with The Children’s Society’s executive leadership team during a pandemic. We reflect on why we chose the framework at that moment in time, how it helped us and what we’d do differently if we ran the pilot again.
We encourage others to use, modify and adapt this methodology.
