Combining scenario management and business model thinking:
why strategic agility is the new way to define your corporate strategy
For the past decades, companies have been defining their strategy following a traditional approach: on the one hand they analyzed trends, selected the most relevant ones, and designed their strategy based on a “clear view of the future”. On the other hand, they created a one-dimensional strategy which – at best – provided a clear direction, but often gave the company's development little room to breathe. Therefore, strategy implementation often turned into strategy justification - the necessary questioning of changes in the environment or the exploration and testing of alternative options was not perceived as invigorating but as disturbing.
Today is the one year anniversary of the Corona virus being first reported in China. And quite frankly, one year ago I personally would not have expected my life as it is today. Otherwise I would have clearly not have booked a drop-dead expensive trip to Tanzania for the summer of 2020. There is some comfort in the fact to be not alone with this (although my friends love to tease me about the fact that I work for a strategic foresight company and still did not see Corona coming, duh).
What role will data play in the healthcare system of the future - and what influence will patients have on its actual usage? ScMI AG, together with the Swiss innovation initiative DayOne and BlauenSolutions, has analyzed data systems in the health sector in a project together with 30 experts from the health sector.
There is much talk of the "new normality". But what could it look like? ScMI has outlined eight possible futures in an open scenario process. None of these scenarios can be excluded today. Nevertheless, we are looking for orientation. Therefore we offer you to participate in our online scenario assessment.
What consequences does the crisis have for society, the economy and politics? Nationalization or cooperation? Solidarity or individualism? Old or new normality? 80 experts joined us in thinking ahead to possible post-corona scenarios. In an open online process. Use the results to make your strategy future-proof.
The final event of the scenario process on the future of city centres in South Westphalia was held at the end of June. The process was supported by the University of Applied Sciences Südwestfalen, the Competence Center E-Commerce and the City Lab Südwestfalen. A participatory process with two large workshops was planned for spring 2020. Due to the corona pandemic, the procedure was modified at short notice, so that the scenarios were created in several online workshops. In this process, the various stakeholders from over 20 municipalities contributed their heterogeneous perspectives and points of view, thus contributing significantly to the breadth of the results.
This March the ScMI AG offers again two open seminars / trainings on the topic of Scenario Management™. This time also in english language in Berlin (12-13 March 2020). One week later, on 19-20 March 2020, we will share our scenario knowledge in German in Paderborn.
For the eighth time the future experts of the ScMI AG accompanied international students of the Technical University Ostwestfalen-Lippe with the development and interpretation of future scenarios.
In the course of their studies in Strategic Management, international students of Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences developed future scenarios in cooperation with ScMI. In this year’s project, the master students focused on determining potential futures for the production environment in the year 2030.
