Devin Fidler
Research Director
Institute for the Future


Devin Fidler is a Research Director with the Institute for the Future (IFTF). Devin’s interests center on the application of foresight to organizational strategy and strategic planning. He is particularly interested in organizations as systems designed to activate “know how” in the right places and at the right times. From this perspective, he argues that in a post-globalization world “all management is knowledge management.” Additional focus areas include new business models, future supply chains, innovation economics and emerging disruptions of the higher education space. Prior to joining IFTF, he was involved with a number of projects in the areas of technology assessment and the future of business, including work in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Research and Analysis Center and as an Analyst for the Royal Bank of Scotland in Edinburgh. He has lived and worked in several countries throughout his career and approaches projects from a strongly international perspective.
