If not forecasting, would you replace the forecast with a foresight prediction method?

Management theory was for long dominated by Causation, (just think about Kotler, in other words Planning, Implementing and follow up.) a different theory that has gained momentum in the last years ( Even if it was first launched in 2001 by Saras D Sarasvathy) is the theory of effectuation that is means driven instead of ends driven. I studied those theories quite extensively but found that when it comes to effectuation there is still no consensus, in other words the theory is not yet mature, something that is in my view a bit odd since the theory is 20 years old just about. Why do you think it has taken such a long time for this theory to mature? my second question. What is the relevance of Kotlers Marketing Management today? Still relevant or? Your thoughts?

Based on my experience, most purchases or mergers of companies do not provide long-term value to the shareholders and customers of the organizations. In fact, there is value destruction and generally the expected synergies are difficult to materialize in terms of competitiveness, especially in the case of companies whose negotiating power in the M & A process is lower. Can you tell me your impressions about it?
