Objective: Drivers of Change card set is devised by the Foresight & Innovation team at Arup, a group tasked with exploring emerging trends and how they impact upon business of Arup and its clients. This set of cards identifies some of the leading drivers of change that affect our future. TÜSİAD-SÜ Competitiveness Forum, along with Foresight Workshop Group, not only translated this work to the Turkish but also added Turkish data and context with regard to the title of the cards. Each card depicts a single driver. A factoid and rhetorical question are on one face, backed up by a brief indication of the breadth and depth of the content on the other face. The publication serves not only as a vibrant visual record of research, but also as a tool for discussion groups, personal prompts, for workshop events or as a ‘thought for the week’.
