Scenario Planning and Strategic Risk Management

  • Edmonton, AB Canada (map)
scenarios

Why?

You need high quality intelligence about your changing landscape to make informed decisions. The world is exceptionally complex and volatile, and the future is uncertain and ambigous.  We face unprecedented and sustained change. Societal values are both progressing and regressing with deep economic and political implications. Technology is sweeping away the old order with radical transparency and openness as it both liberates and restricts. In a wild world, governance, leadership, strategy and policy call for a different mindset. In this wild world strategic foresight provides you with a framework to anticipate your changing business landscape and adapt to future developments. This is particularly helpful where innovation is badly needed.

What?

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 teaches scenario planning and strategic risk management process and methods from a holistic, systemic and long-term perspective. 

How?

You will be provided with sufficient theory and learn to apply scenario and strategic risk management process and methods. Starting with a challenge that is relevant to participants, we will learn to build scenarios, assess scenarios for strategic impact, communicate compelling scenario models, and assess implications given the challenge. 

Who?

This will be a creative and inspiring workshop. The workshop is designed for those who wish to apply scenario planning, modelling and strategic risk managment in their daily jobs. Participants should be ready to apply both strong logical analysis and weaker abductive and creative thinking.
