Strategic Foresight

Authentically engaging with the future should be the primary responsibility of all leaders

Strategic Thinking

The way of solving strategic problems and opportunities  combining generative and rational thought processes 

System Thinking

The holistic understanding of how value is created in terms of its inter-dependencies

Strategy Decision Making

The formulation of strategy and related decision making as a produc of foresight and strategic thinking

Organisational Capability

The capacity to consistently achieve desired outcomes, to adapt and change as necessary, and to create and realise new opportunities. It encompasses the collective skills, knowledge, experience, systems, processes, culture, and other factors that enable and organisation to execute its strategy and achieve its goals effectively and efficiently. We support to:

  • define your baseline capabilities
  • articulate the required capabilities to execute your business strategy
  • develop a gap analysis
  • tailor solutions to bridge the gap
  • plan for capability development
  • provide resources and routines to expedite capability development

 "Foresight and strategic thinking are often mentioned but little understood concepts. Many organisations claim to be ‘foresightful’ and ‘strategic’ yet this often does not extend beyond empty statements, intuition, recipes of past success and the hubris of individual executives. Increasing business failures illustrate that this is not sufficient in meeting the demands of rapid change in an increasingly complex social and economic environment"
