Foresight to Strategy

For Security and Sustainability

in Governance

Foresight

We help clients experiment with alternative futures to give them a feeling for the strategic risks and opportunities at hand. The process opens minds to alternative strategy options and lets participants check if any given strategy will be robust/resilient, in all futures.

Strategy

We assist organisations to develop strategic rules of thumb that align all stakeholders. The process identifies the options to pursue, and opens the door to running “safe to fail” experiments that can develop a strategy/policy progressively and organically.

Playification

We use software tools to visualise work, and let management/stakeholders play with the results. Also, we have developed role-playing games to let management play other stakeholders, and see how they react to alternative strategic moves  and future challenges.

 

What we do

We help management interactively

develop strategy/policy for dealing with the challenges of today and tomorrow either in their leadership team, or with the participation of other colleagues and stakeholders.

 

We do this with interviews, workshops, and on-line interactions, employing a variety of methods, tools and games. We also empower organisations to set up such capacities for themselves, by giving training, templates and coaching.

Who we are

Our Methods

What we offer

We are a small team with a broad network of partners. The core team has undertaken projects in 36 different countries, and run workshops in 6 languages (English, French, German, Finnish, Portuguese and Spanish).

Although we started with a focus on sustainability and security, our real strength is method. As a result, we have run projects on multiple industry sectors and policy areas.

We use software tools to visualise work, and let management/stakeholders play with the results. Also, we have developed role-playing games to let management play other stakeholders, and see how they react to alternative strategic moves  and future challenges.

Find out more

In some cases we will embed our personnel in a client organisation to complete a specific project. In all cases the emphasis is that the client knows their business/policy best, and we empower them to find the best solutions for their area of expertise. Often we recommend outside stakeholders be included in the process, so as to broaden the expertise available, and make sure all relevant actors are aligned in implementing the strategy.

 

There is a lot more to tell about our work, but our new website is still under construction.
