If there’s something the last months has reminded us, it’s that we live in a dynamic world, so we need to be dynamic thinkers. This program is designed to develop your dynamic strategic thinking capacity. Core to this endeavor is the use of scenarios. World-renowned scenario specialist Chantell llbury will guide you through the essential elements under pinning effective scenario-planning, and, importantly, how to integrate this thinking within a broader strategic framework for more agile and adaptable decision-making.
The main objective of the program is to develop the use of scenarios to ensure your decision making is more agile, adaptable and anticipatory. To achieve this, it follows a proven, robust methodology that will allow you to refine the scope of a strategic question, identify the key players that may influence it, identify the certainties and uncertainties as you look to the future, and then connect the dots and synthesize your strategic intelligence into a set of bespoke scenarios. Next, the program looks at how to use these scenarios in your decision making, and ultimately, prepare your ongoing adaptability to a changing and uncertain environment to achieve your own meaning of winning.
After completion of the program, delegates will be able to: create an awareness of the world around them, and how it is changing; anticipate change in their broader and immediate environments; effectively build and use scenarios to map multiple possible futures; identify key flags indicating change and shifts in scenarios, thereby building agility into strategic planning; and incorporate scenarios into strategic decision-making. Delegate will work on an action learning project connected to their own business or industry. This will provide the delegate with a practical document to incorporate into their business and operations.
This course will address 5 pillars.
Pillar 1: Awareness: Clearly defining your current environment, and the broader forces shaping it. Articulating the scope of your focus and identifying the key players that may have an influence on you.
Pillar 2: Intelligence: Distinguishing the certainties with a direct impact on you and your business, and those that are equally important, but unpredictable.
Pillar 3: Synthesis: Synthesizing the intelligence you have analyzed into a set of the most relevant scenarios you can use to anticipate change in the future and manage the surrounding uncertainty.
Pillar 4: Decision-making: Situating your place within each possible scenario (with the preferred and worst- case scenarios in mind) and relating these plausible futures to the key strategic decisions that need to be made in the current context, or in the near future.
Pillar 5: Reflection: Clearly articulating what success looks like for you in the future, incorporating the uncertainty of the different possible scenarios that may materialize.
