Find a Clearer Roadmap to Guide Your Organization to the Future
Under conditions of constantly growing volatility and ambiguity, competitive ad-vantage goes to those companies who best deduce the forces acting on their indus-try, and who most capably adapt their businesses to profit from them.
But nobody can predict the future. A lot rests, therefore, on an executive man-ager's superior ability to judge the course and timing of new initiatives under uncertain conditions.
The Strategic Foresight program is a comprehensive introduction to the approaches and tools of industry foresight, and how these link to the management decision-making process to create strategic advantage.
This program illustrates with examples, activities and guest speakers, how to develop an integrated management foresight perspective to make better business decisions under conditions of external uncertainty, and turn this advantage into profitable real-world products and services.
Participants will emerge having applied the industry foresight toolkit to their own company and industry, giving them a real-world future-management agenda to take back into their organisation’s own planning process.
