One of the core objectives of the IFR is to assist senior leaders to make better decisions by anticipating risk earlier and by sensing opportunities in good time. Our CORE service therefore strives to deliver the most recent thinking on the future(s) of South Africa and Africa through various publications and workshops.

Our publications provide concise, digestible pieces of well-researched information. We scan six themes:

The New World of Business

Social Capital


Technology and Innovation


The art and science of decision-making
