Through our scenario planning process, we help our clients build the capacity to navigate and transform in volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous times.
In the current crisis, many leaders have addressed the urgent need to stabilize operations by focusing on activities that help them respond and recover. Now, there's an opportunity to take a longer-term view and renew organizations for the future. By surfacing blind spots and challenging assumptions for ‘business-as-usual’ and the ‘new normal’, organizations can increase their resilience.
While we can’t predict the future, the discipline of strategic foresight helps us explore the sources of uncertainty and better understand the forces shaping the world around us. By envisioning and aligning on the preferred future of the organization, leaders can channel the talent and energy of their people towards a shared vision for transformation.
