10 – 11 July 2017 Strategy, Scenario Planning and the Role of the Board, London, UK

10-11 JULY 2017

According to Charles Darwin, the most successful species are not necessarily the most powerful ones but those that most readily adapt to whatever nature throws at them. Similarly, individuals or organisations of any kind require strategies that can be suitably adapted for the changing environment around them if they are to enjoy long-lasting success and prosperity.
The key to doing this is to look out, then look in. This entails a combination of steps starting with scenario planning, a trusted technique that allows you to visualise possible changes to the environment that may affect you. The second step is to examine the consequences of each scenario for your business. Finally – based on the severity of the potential consequences – you need to work out the best possible plan to cope with the challenges and act on it.

This 2 day interactive workshop will cover:
• Strategic thinking and scenario planning overview
• Strategy development
• Development of scenarios
• The role of the board and the role of management in strategy
• Understanding the global context – strategic trends, global scenarios, flags and probabilities

• Strategic insight and examples
• Using The Strategic Conversation Model, the development of scenarios and a strategy relevant for participants for the region, individual sectors or specific businesses
• Case studies
• Measurable outcomes and targets
• Action Plans and summary of the thinking
