Learning Outcomes

Crises create uncertainty – which may lead to confusion and loss of competitiveness – but they can also lead to new opportunities.

This workshop will teach you how to address uncertainty, embrace change, identify opportunities and grow stronger – all in a structured framework which facilitates regular review.

Traditional strategic planning and analyses often fail us because we cannot predict the future well. Scenario planning overcomes that problem. But to generate plausible future scenarios, we have to be creative and use imagination. From any number of scenarios, we can develop multiple options for action, and the final step in the process is to prioritise the options and decide on a way forward (the strategic plan).

As well as learning how to develop your own strategic plan, this workshop will allow you to experience the actual process. Participants will engage with each other in two facilitated exploration-relevant exercises: for commodity selection and new country expansion. You will learn how:

  • To turn fragilities into assets
  • The “rules of the game” reduce uncertainties and limit options
  • To understand the weakness of traditional strategic planning tools
  • To use scenario planning to generate options for action
  • To prioritise your options
  • To decide quickly and effectively
  • To avoid bias and bad decisions
