The new technologies of the fourth industrial revolution, such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing and robotics, are changing the way we live, learn and do business at a rate unprecedented in human history. This seismic shift is playing out in a world characterized by unreliable political landscapes and increasing environmental instability. It shows that today, more than ever, leaders need tools to understand the future and plan for it beyond short-term periods. In this research, which has been written with document analysis method and relying on the future mapping report from the World Economic Forum (WEF) and several future research reports, a complete report for future study as a practical and strategic field has been started. It shows a spectrum of possible (probable) futures for tomorrow's organization based on investigation of past, present and socio-economic trends through a new foresight model. In the following, by examining the spectrum of foresight with the help of exponential trend lines, focusing on informational, location, economic and educational Lens, and looking at the past, upcoming technologies and possible future developments in each field, it predicts the future and tells the leaders of tomorrow and organizations in choosing their plans for survival, it provides useful information so that they can smooth the way ahead and avoid future risks by drawing of the future.
