Strategic Foresight

A clear vision of the future is the key success factor for the development of sustainable strategies in companies and organizations

Mid and long term planning is crucial for better decisions today

Identify opportunities for growth based on future scenarios

Growth- and value-oriented strategies require a deep understanding of future markets, customer needs, the competitor landscape, business models, the political landscape, future risks and regulations and technological changes and disruptions. Framing all these factors into a solid model of the future that allows for continuous updates and adaptations is challenging. Companies need to

  • define a foresight framework
  • choose the tools and methods to create future-oriented strategies
  • integrate various data sources to keep the foresight results up-to-date
  • use communication formats that speak to decision makers in various positions in the company
  • integrate knowledge from inside and outside the company
