Scenario planning workshops
One of the major problems faced by teams and organisations is that the future is unknowable. These uncertain risks and opportunities can be understood by constructing a set of logically consistent short stories about alternate futures.
What it is: A structured method to develop a series of short narratives about a range of possible futures
Who's it for: Teams and organisations that need to create a shared understanding of the future
The outcome: Higher quality inputs into any strategic planning process.
Strategic thinking workshops
Leaders, managers, stakeholders among others get caught up in working in-the-business instead of on-the-business. One critical skill is the ability to think strategically about what lies ahead.
What it is: A structured method to develop strategic thinking skills.
Who's it for: Leaders, managers and senior organisational stakeholders
The outcome: Development of skills to consider options beyond business-as-usual
Industry future reports
Futures-oriented inputs to the strategy development and planning process improves the depth and integrity of decision making. These reports are a future-focused analysis of relevant long term industry trends.
What it is: Futures-focused analysis on industry sectors using standardised strategic foresight methods.
Who's it for: Stakeholders who need futures-focused inputs for strategy development and planning activities.
The outcome: You will gain valuable insights into the long term trends affecting your issue of concern.
Topical futures public speaking
Often times groups need to hear from a specialist about coming changes in order to kick-start their considerations of, and preparations for, long term decisions. These "future-themed" presentations are tailored to relevant issues.
