"Foresight is not a magic bullet, but it has helped our team become unstuck... The system we operated in had rendered alternatives impossible. The majority of us were unable to imagine a different and better future for children and families.

Our work with Openfields has helped us see the limits in our own thinking and begin to generate ideas and alternatives to challenge and transform the status quo."

Dr. Jackie Counts
Director of the Center for Public Partnerships & Research at the University of Kansas
