Strategic Innovation Lab under the direction of Lenore Richards has been assisting Lenore’s development of the forthcoming OCAD degree program, Master of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation. More information on the Foresight MDes program is available from OCAD’s web site.

Below are the beginnings of a bibliography which we’ve been assembling for support of the program’s faculty and students.

We welcome reactions or additions from readers of this blog, including faculty and students — please let us know what we are missing:
