In this paper we explore the current understanding of corporate
foresight as a system for creating understandings of possible futures, factors
that drive the need and usage of corporate foresight as well as how corporate
foresight can contribute to a firm’s innovation performance. Drawing upon still
limited research on corporate foresight, we find that 1) there is still little
consensus on the concept of corporate foresight, 2) the need for corporate
foresight can originate from both internal and external factors, and 3)
innovation performance can be positively influenced by a number of factors
through corporate foresight. Resulting is a comprehensive theoretical
framework incorporating these findings. While research on corporate foresight
is still scarce, in particular quantitative research, we call for more quantitative
research for which our theoretical model may function as a basis.
