Using Collaborative Scenario Development to Anticipate Your Future Business Ecosystem

Scenarios are purpose built for today’s complex and turbulent business ecosystem. So, why does scenario planning remain a largely misunderstood and under utilized resource in the strategic planning kit-bag?

Using multiple case studies, this session will provide an original and accessible approach to scenario planning which de-mystifies the complexity of scenarios and has proven effective in achieving optimal organizational impact.

Key aspects of this approach include:

  • An emphasis on collaborative scenario and strategy development which mobilizes the creative and entrepreneurial capabilities that lie
    within every organization
  • The integration of strategy formulation and implementation to maximize execution effectiveness
  • A unique approach to process design and facilitation which recognizes the central role of the participant in scenario planning success
    and the importance of ‘bringing everybody along’
  • Translating scenarios to long-term organizational strategic frameworks and shorter-term implementation plans which tie anticipation of
    the future business ecosystem back to organizational priorities

Attendees will walk away from this session empowered to employ more effective and impactful scenario planning practices to help their clients achieve the future they want for their business.
