Scenario-based strategy: Why and how?

We all will remember year 2020 forever. No matter what happens, or doesn’t happen next, it has been a big reminder to all of us that unexpected events can take place – even very rapidly.

For businesses it is a reminder that it is better to be agile. Organizations that are agile are more resilient to external shocks and better equipped to capture new opportunities. The best performers can flourish even under harsh conditions.

Using scenario analysis in strategy work is a superior approach for developing a playbook that enables agility. We like to talk about “Living strategy”.
