How do you plan for the future in a turbulent environment - when you don't know what the future is likely to be like? Leaders use a number of tools to help them to anticipate the future world within which their organisations will operate. Of these, trend analysis and scenario development are the most popular. With good quality trend research as a background, they are both easy to do in that there is a logical step by step process you can follow.
In our first article, we look at how to develop powerful scenarios of the future.
We then present our latest research on strategic trends in the form of attractive Strategic Trends Cards for the planning period of 2016 - 2017. Use these cards to do a PEST analysis, to identify future opportunities and to develop powerful scenarios of the future.
We add a new OD intervention into our member zone. This is a right brain, creative activity you can use to help a team to develop their own scenario of the future. Use this intervention to turn their fear of the future into excitement about the future.
When we feel powerful, we have more energy. This energy helps us to create more exciting plans for the future. But what if we are feeling dis-empowered? In our blog post, we show you how to get your power and mojo back.
We hope that by using these tools, you will create powerful and exciting futures for yourself, your teams and your organization.
