The aim of the lecture is to provide the participants with a basic understanding of horizon scanning as a concept as well as the main approaches and sources. Furthermore, it is the aim to provide the participants with the basic knowledge to do a scan by searching early sign or weak signals. During the exercise, the participants determine proper data sources, research questions and search strings to scan the environment of an organisation. In this context horizon scanning is understood as a technique for detecting early warning signs or weak signals of potential significant changes in the environments and assumptions underlying the operation of the organisation.
