Foresight is the ability to visualize alternate futures and shape the direction of future events. Generally considered as an organizational capability, foresight can be the basis of sustained competitive advantage, and needs to be fostered by enabling employees to acquire, assimilate, and analyze information with a future orientation. However, research on what constitutes foresight at the employee (i.e., individual) level is sparse. This paper fills this gap by using a five-stage mixed-mode process to propose an extended foresight measure. This paper has implications for research on the individual aspect of microfoundations of capability building, organizational measures development, and foresight literature. © 1988-2012 IEEE.
