Joe Murphy is a grounded futurist who researches the future to inform decisions.
Joe applies his unique experience and education to combine the analytical and the creative aspects of crafting the future:
- Science Librarian at Yale
- Director of Futures for tech firm
- M.S. in Foresight (current)
- Executive MBA
- Master’s of Library & Info Science
- Bachelor’s degree in Physics.
These anchors; scientist, manager, librarian, along with formal training ensure that my work as a futurist is accountable to evidence, that my divergent multiple futures are answered with convergent analysis. I use data to make projections and know when imagination needs to be inserted and where to apply my training in systems dynamics design thinking n strategizing and in challenging our biases. With critical insight, I define limits and know when the past ceases to be a good indicator of the future.
Values: My driving ethic is to I advocate for the future of all stakeholders and for all stakeholders of the future.
Our futures, plural.
