Scenario Planning and Strategic Risk Management

We cannot predict the future, but we can anticipate critical choices that will impact your strategy. By oscillating among strong and weak logic and by applying a creative and engaging mindset you can create a reasonably accurate range of choices. Scenarios tell a compelling story about the complexity that we face. Moreover, well constructed and presented scenarios enable thoughtful planning relating to business model design, changing services or products, risk management, strategic planning and policy development. This practical 1-day intensive workshop will focus on developing scenarios that are responsive to the complex and uncertain world that we live in. Strategic risk management is an emerging strategic advantage that emphasizes planning for critically impactful changes that might disrupt or annihilate your strategic intentions.  The workshop prepares you to deliver scenario planning and strategic risk management process and methods from a holistic, systemic and long-term perspective.
