the changing landscape

Complex factors are shaping your operating environment. Globally, China is consolidating its hold on the South China Sea; the buying power of it’s middle class is expanding; the US/China tariff war is widening; the threat of asset/IP theft and system take-over by cyber-criminals/terrorists is growing. Locally: Baby-boomers are ageing; social media is shaping our marketing, communication and attitudes; ageing infrastructure is strangling movement of goods; and climate extremes increasingly damage all sectors of our economy. Unexpected change such as trade sanctions or policy flip-flops on energy/water/transport undermine planning. These factors are real, outside your control, yet they set the goal-posts of your operating environment. How do you reperceive change and reposition yourself to better prepare for the risks  and opportunities that change brings?

robust decision making under uncertainty

Where issues are complex, uncertainty high and values contested, conventional top-down approaches to strategic directioning are no longer appropriate.  New conditions require new paradigms

Scenario planning enables exploration of multiple, parallel changes in key global drivers, and consideration of flow-on effects in the operating environment. This enhanced understanding of systemic behavior enables a reperception of reality, illumination of potential risk (opportunity), reconsideration of strategic direction and robust decision making under uncertainty. Transdisciplinarity adds to this robustness by incorporating the knowledge of key actors (business, government, disciplinary experts, stakeholders) in the collaborative framing of issues, priorities, goals and strategies. We adopt a transdisciplinary approach to scenario planning to help you prepare for significant change in your operating environment (Services).  

We look forward to working with you.
