About the Show

To imagine the future, it helps to have a clear-eyed view of what's happening right now.

The city of Dallas, Texas, now knows where it stands, thanks to an analysis by Booz Allen Hamilton funded by The Dallas Morning News. The result was the report,ÊÊthat sounds an urgent warning about the challenges facing the city. We'll talk about the report with consultant Andrew Clyde and business editor Ed Dufner.

"Dallas at the Tipping Point" is a joint effort of Booz Allen Hamilton consultants and some of the best reporters and editors at the Dallas Morning News to answer the question, 'How is Dallas doing?' Its conclusions are sobering, pointing out many of the gaps in the city's performance.

Dr. Wendy Schultz helps organizations see beyond their present to imagine their future. She is both a teacher and a practitioner of futures studies based in Oxford, England.
