“Strategic Failures are Failures of Imagination”
US Naval Institute 

Useful Fiction™works at the intersection of strategic foresight, technology discovery, and narrative. Having collaborated with organizations that range from the US military and Hollywood production companies to the world’s leading tech firms, we pioneered a new methodology to envision, innovate, and communicate. Known as Useful Fiction™ or FICINT™ (Fictional Intelligence), it melds nonfiction research with the power of narrative to reach target audiences with greater effect.  

Our creative and analytical projects have been featured in media like The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, and Wired and lauded by figures who range from the heads of military services and government agencies to the world’s most successful investors.
