WE NEED KNOWLEDGE FOR 2005-2010-- to change paradigm from current embarrassment and bewilderment:

"Is it possible to translate the Lisbon strategy into adequate and suitable actions in a Member State if its political leadership does not understand (?) framework and conceptual settings of the Lisbon process for a citizen, companies and nation, does not talk about enablers and impediments of the process to their voters, cannot help in mobilizing society for economic, social and environmental renewal?"
The used methods ball in: FOR-RISball

1. Our assumption is that the proposed conceptual settings and framework can help to guide decision making related to
the entrepreneurial mindset and innovative activities development.

2. On such foundation a Guide to the Entrepreneurial Foresight Basics would be discussed.

3. We see simple and popular definition: Entrepreneurial Foresight Basics is a necessary commodity for which demand is constant.

4. It is a commodity from which other values (intangible and material) can be derived.
