FUTURE DEEP DIVES
Future Deep Dives gives the opportunity for your organization to engage in a Scenario Planning and Strategic Agility project, using our Futures Framework “Scanning, Sensing and Acting”, starting with the design of the process and the key decisions to be made in order to make it useful.
From the definition of the Strategic Focus & Time Horizon, going through the different Scanning stages and the construction of a “Scanning Dashboard”, we will identify and explore Megatrends, Trends, Weak Signals, Wildcards & Critical Uncertainties.
From here you will be able learn how to design a fit-for-purpose Scenario Planning project and then prepare for action, which includes Exploring and Probing Strategic Options and Responses. This stage can include the exploration of strategic decisions and the use of a “Business Models Playbox” to test alternative options, and the design of a “Strategic and Technological Roadmap” for the future of the company. We will use this Roadmap as a Strategic Platform to explore and make sense of new challenges and opportunities.
We also offer companies the possibiity to explore what we call a Fast-Forward Future Deep Dives, allowing them to update their traditional strategy processes to ensure more robust, flexible, and agile strategies.

SCANNING, SENSING & ACTING
A Strategic Foresight Framework
Anticipate Trends, face Uncertainties, build future Scenarios and use this to improve your approach to Strategy and Innovation.
We developed a powerful and flexible strategic foresight framework for organisations to think and act on the future: SCANNING, SENSING AND ACTING ©.
SCANNING: Recognize key drivers of change and use them to be better prepared for future challenges and new opportunities.
SENSING: Build and explore scenarios for the future, combining them with tools of strategic design and innovation.
ACTING: Build responses to alternative scenarios, identify areas of growth, and design new business models.
This framework includes the building of a Scanning Dashboard with all the driving forces of change (megatrends, weak signals, wild cards and uncertainties), the sense making of those drivers through foresight tools and methods (scenarios and systems maps), and the capability of translating and using all that knowledge and insights into the strategy and innovation processes of the company (innovation labs, strategic design tools or new business modelling).
This framework is the backbone of our consulting projects and also the way we design executive programs.
