PPPPs (Public-Private-Persona-Partnerships)
We are a private-public collaboration initiatives believers and so we think as well that the persons are the heart of the projects so we look for trustful reliable persons who want to boost interesting and useful projects. Always in mind that must serve an objective and a need.
To better understand the needs, expectations and how to achieve the goals required we work under a prospective approach.
What is Prospective?
The future is not determined in advance
The future is built. There will be no freedom of choice and action without an attitude of foresight that anticipates events. The reactive strategy is worth less and becomes more traumatic.
The future is subject to large doses of uncertainty and risk. In order not to mortgage it, it is necessary to optimize the available means and resources, using strategic foresight as a working tool.
The Strategic Prospective is the science that studies the future in advance, to be able to influence it and become masters of our own future or, in its case, to prepare ourselves in time and thus, not have to suffer the future as we usually do but To do it.
