About Katherine Prince

 

One of the United States’ foremost educational futurists, Katherine leads KnowledgeWorks’ exploration of the future of learning. In addition to setting the strategy for the organization’s strategic foresight work, she speaks and writes about the trends shaping education over the next decade and helps education stakeholders strategize about how to become active agents of change in shaping the future.

 

Since 2007, Katherine has worked with education stakeholders across the United States and beyond to apply insights from KnowledgeWorks’ forecasts on the future of learning to their own contexts. She designs and facilitates generative conversations that help participants explore future possibilities and identify their priorities for responding to the changing landscape. Katherine also helps people keep their eyes on the horizon and explore emerging issues by leading the development of comprehensive ten-year forecasts, deep dives into specific topics, strategy guides and experiential futures resources and by writing articles and blog posts about the future of learning.

Prior to that, she managed customer satisfaction improvement projects and established a technical communications group at Pacific Consulting Group in California. In that capacity, she helped federal agencies and other clients increase service quality by incorporating a customer perspective into their organizational planning.
