“I have been called “the CEOs’ Futurist”” as I usually speak to and advise CEO’s on the future. I call this process “futuring,” Houle explains via his bio. “We look at where the company is today, the future trends that will reshape the world, how they will affect the marketplace, and then how the company might better face this future. I have helped companies completely re-brand and redirect to better face the future and rapidly changing marketplaces.
”In this process I strive to be a catalyst toward a breakthrough idea or strategy – one that might in the short term of months to years or long term of decades create great value for individuals and companies alike.”
Houle spoke to GoodEReader at DBW about his projections for where digital publishing is going and about a new program launched with Houle and Sourcebooks termed agile publishing. In agile publishing, material is digitally published in portions prior to a final compilation edition. This method allows material to be brought to market and to the audience in the most timely of manners.
