Founded in August 1994 by Fabienne GOUX-BAUDIMENT, proGective was born from the desire to create an intellectually and financially independent place dedicated to operational foresight.
At the same time a research laboratory, an horizon-scanning tool and an awareness and training center, proGective SAS is, first and foremost, an advisory tool serving public and private organizations, to face concretely and positively the changes underway and to come.
It relies on a network of reliable and competent partners, mostly bilingual, to supplement its knowledge (specialists), expand its intervention capacity (futurists, facilitators, consultants, trainers) and provide additional services (learning expedition, innovation management, illustration & communication, marketing, etc.).
Anticipation to enlighten action, this “intellectual indiscipline” (Pierre MASSE), born in the 1950s, seeks to see “far, wide and deep to think of Man, all together, and take risks” (Gaston BERGER)
It makes it possible to identify, analyse and understand the forces at work that structure the future: heavy or emerging trends, seeds for the future, ruptures in the making, but also aspirations and cultural changes.
It expresses a critical look, a non-conformist spirit, in search of alternative solutions. It is a philosophy of change, an instrument for exploring possibilities and a tool for building a chosen future.
Because foresight is, above all, a collective exercise of human will to shape the future (Fabienne GOUX-BAUDIMENT).
Our goal: to understand the world ahead and help our clients prepare for it, either by adapting to it or by shaping their own future.
Our credo: methodological optimism. An unwavering faith in the ability of human beings to progress.
Our working tool: foresight in all its forms, participatory, collaborative, exploratory, normative … but always operational to be useful, and advanced to be at the forefront of developments rather than frozen in obsolete conceptions.
Our modalities of action :
- strategic and operational advice, on any medium-long term issue, involving the transformation of an organization (company, public institution, NGO), human activities (work, agriculture, economy, etc.) or a territory (from cities or countryside to State-level or world regions) ;
- awareness-raising and action-based training: seminars for governing bodies (Boards), learning expedition for high potentials, internal or public conferences, collective intelligence workshops, design of training programs;
- research and study on key issues requiring a different perspective (futures-oriented, structural and systemic) on the subject: Africa, agriculture, education, climate change, energy, city, digital transformation, creation of human value, development of human resources … As we are at the “tip of the arrow”, we work on all sectors of major importance for tomorrow.
We combine the values that inspire us –Humanism, Joy and Uprightness– with the fundamentals of our business –foresight, transformation, collaboration– to achieve the intrinsic objectives of all our actions and missions.
