The first time I read about this theory was in the book «The Key to Success» by Malcolm Gladwell who explains it in one of his chapters to talk about how messages spread. This theory postulates the following:
«Visible signs of crime or civil disorder create an urban environment that encourages more crime. The best way to reduce crime is to deal with these visible signs, no matter how insignificant they may seem».

The Master in Strategic Thinking and Foresight has taken on the challenge of training leaders of organizations with a vision of the future. This means: people who are aware of global change and the new planetary rules of the game, with the capacity to mobilize companies and territories towards the construction of their future.
Failure to prepare for the future is tantamount to living in the vagaries of economic, social and technological changes, instead of anticipating them before they occur. This is how organizations, companies or territories that want to be competitive act, because they make the future their best ally instead of being surprised by it.
The students of the Master’s program have the option of receiving at the headquarters of «Futuribles» (47, rue de Babylone – 75007 Paris) an advanced training course in the principles and methods of foresight, interacting with its researchers and receiving a «Certificate» awarded by this illustrious and prestigious institution.
Note: Graduates of the Specialization in Strategic Thinking and Foresight program of the Faculty of Business Administration, in which case their admission process will be of a priority nature and subject to a special regime of homologations of up to 30% (216 hours) based on the curriculum studied.
