Horizon Scanning & Strategic Intelligence
Scanning for Megatrends, Trends, Weak Signals, Uncertainties or Wild Cards are ways of making sense of change and a powerful ignition for identifying, structuring and understanding changes in the business and global environments.
We strongly believe that we can improve the competitive positioning of organizations and use these as inputs to identify new growth opportunities, foster strategic agility, and design innovation strategies and projects.
Scanning in strategic foresight means the capability to capture, identify, categorize and make sense of a multitude of drivers of change, insights or signals that can be relevant when we explore the future of a specific topic or issue.
Some of these elements can be megatrends or more specific trends; others can be weak signals or early warnings, others can be wildcards or black swans, and others can be critical uncertainties that can be used as inputs to build and explore scenarios.

When considering the future, we need to identify and explore large-scale, long-term shifts that significantly impact societies, economies, and cultures.
Our Megatrends Dashboards highlight these phenomena and allows our clients to create a basis and a tool for strategic conversations that promotes a zoom-in of those massive changes from their specific perspective.

Scenario Planning & Strategic Agility
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.
