    Scenario & Contingency Planning

    Oliver Wight is running a half-day virtual course to help you get ready to respond to multiple potential futures with competitive advantage.

    Overview
    As the pandemic recedes, the massive impact it has brought upon the world remains. Now, faced with unprecedented levels of global uncertainty, how do you prepare your organisation for the future, whatever that turns out to be?

    What is the workshop about?
    This half-day virtual course will show how you can use Scenario and Contingency Action Planning to ensure you are ready to respond to multiple potential futures with competitive advantage.

    Scenario and Contingency Action Planning is a powerful methodology that includes:

    • Identifying the critical uncertainties that have the biggest impact on your business.
    • Creating the top four future scenarios, including opportunities and challenges.
    • Developing and documenting contingency action plans to take advantage of these scenarios, with owners, timelines, resources and trigger points.
    • Defining and documenting your Scenario and Contingency Action Planning process, to keep the scenario and contingency action plans ‘live’ in your business, via weekly and monthly planning processes.

    In our experience, few organisations invest the necessary time and effort to ensure sure their contingency action plans are understood and have been rehearsed. So effectively preparing your organisation to execute a contingency action plan that meets the demands of the future will unlock competitive advantage.
