THE MIND OF A FOX (article first published : 2001-07-8)

Last week, Adams & Co. Booksellers and Human & Rousseau Publishers launched The Mind Of A Fox : scenario planning in action by Clem Sunter and Chantel Illbury.

The Mind of the Fox is the scenario planning put into action, following the success of Clem Sunter’s previous book South Africa - The High Road. Using the analogy of the fox, the authors show how the mental processes typical of the ingenuity of the fox are perfectly natural and can be a powerful tool in scenario planning/decision making.

The authors present a crisp, entertaining analysis using several examples from business, nature, science and sport, to identify “the two questions you should ask before committing yourself to action, viz. what you DO control and what you DON`T. What IS certain about the future and what is NOT?”

Chantel Illbury was born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, and obtained a BSc in Chemistry and an HDE from the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg. A creative and committed scientist and educator, Chantel taught science and lectured chemistry before founding Science Works, a company that specialises in the innovative communication of science, particularly to young people.

Clem Sunter, a director of The Anglo American Corporation, is well known for his scenario planning ideas put forward in his book South Africa – The High Road. He was born in Suffolk, England, and studied Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford. He has been with Anglo American since 1966.
