Abstract

This article presents the scenarios, visions and strategies that resulted from a three day foresight workshop for Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM) in Melaka, Malaysia. The workshop used the 'six pillars' approach to foresight. The methods used included: The futures triangle, emerging issues analysis, the futures wheel, the Sarkar game and macrohistory, causal layered analysis, the integrated scenario method, visioning and backcasting. The workshop concluded with three alternatives: UTeM Everywhere, UTeM - Industry Integrated, and UTeM SOHO. These visions were complementary in the preparation of the UTeM Strategic Plan 2012-2020. The workshop has led to new and executable strategies as the university forges ahead towards 2020.
