Future preparedness in enterprises is seen as an important factor affecting their performance and long-term survival. Different organisations present various approaches to reflecting on alternative future visions of their businesses. They are also characterised by different styles of translating those reflections into action with the aim of achieving a desirable version of their future. The paper presents the results of research which aimed at exploring how large Polish, mostly industrial, enterprises reflect on their long-term future. It also attempts to answer the question on the need for fostering futures literacy in Polish business milieu. The research fills in the gap in the study of future orientation of the Polish enterprises and it may be a starting point for the more in-depth qualitative and quantitative investigations. The study has been carried out on a sample of large enterprises in Podlaskie Voivodship, Poland.
Key words: future preparedness / future orientation / foresight / industry / enterprise
