About the author:
Dr. Charlie Grantham is a Viet Nam combat veteran who served eight years in the US Army as a Chief Warrant Officer in the Intelligence Corps. That time was followed by successful careers in academia as a professor, and in multi-national technology companies as an executive director of research and development. Most recently, he was a co-founder of the Work Design Collaborative that worked with companies and communities to create workplaces of the future. With this rich multi-disciplinary background, he is now pursuing his passion for helping communities and leaders realize their true potential for effective governance and sustainability.
Before we had the phrase "social entrepreneur," Norma Owen was one. She has designed and implemented 21st Century workforce development programs for marginal groups such as the homes and women at risk. Norma knows how to maximize every opportunity in a situation, bringing a future-oriented, commanding presence to the team. She is our "get it done" and "keep it organized" person.
Terry Musch can teach engineers and scientists how to think like artists and poets, a unique talent indeed. He has honed these skills for over 20 years with companies such as Boeing, Rockwell and most recently a major engagement with Pacific Gas & Electric. Terry brings many strengths to this team, chief among them: gathering information, staying connected, and generating new models and ideas. He is our "So what do you think?" person who always pushes us to look deep within ourselves.

Mrs Norma A Owen, Mr. Terry L Musch
If you feel the rules have changed, that you can't catch your breath and just as you step on stable ground a rug has been pulled from beneath you, you'd be right! In a short dozen years there's been almost an unimaginable impact of unforeseen events in how we work, live, play and learn together. It's safe to say more changes are on the way.
The trio that authored this book, ForeSight 2025, has spent the last two years listening to community and business leaders about their concerns, hopes and fears. Charlie Grantham, Norma Owen and Terry Musch have combined their expertise in technology, workforce change and next generation professional development to produce a guide to the future.
Being agile and sustainable going forward will require leadership that brings together the sharp edged analytical with disciplined intuition. In 21st Century dual hemisphere brain fashion, ForeSight 2025 is written in a way that exercises the critical capacity of whole brain thinking. Whether you are looking to stay relevant in an ever changing workplace, expand, re-locate a business, or trying to invigorate your workforce for global challenges, here is where you begin.
