Profit from Market Uncertainty

How do we facilitate the Scenario Planning workshops?

  • We base them on the scenario planning processes of the most successful companies.
  • Our Workshop Facilitators will encourage your team to use their knowledge of your organisation and your industry
  • We will generate scenarios using the forces and trends we see from both within and from outside of your organisation
  • You’ll begin to see how best to position yourselves to take advantage of those trends and uncertainties

What are the benefits of Scenario Planning the Rainmaker way?

  • The scenarios are realistic and usable not “pie in the sky”.
  • We create a safe but energised environment for the the team
  • You look in a detached and unemotional way at the industry forces
  • You assess their possible impact on your organisation.
  • You are prepared when changes begin to happen
  • You’re positioned and equipped to take advantage
  • You don’t merely sit on the sidelines and watch change happen.
  • Everyone’s input is captured, is expressed and seen by all.
  • In short…. We evolve a plan that will maximise any opportunities!

What will you walk out with after the scenario planning workshop?

  • A force field map of forces at work within your industry.
  • Four separate probable and possible future scenarios
  • Each with opportunities and threats for your company
  • A decision making context in which to view investment decisions
  • A filter for Opportunities to create and to take advantage of…
  • A report detailing the scenarios and the implications for the business.
