“It’s tough to predict the future. Ironically, strategic business decisions are based on exactly this — predicting the future. Successful companies prepare for the future using the science of ‘Scenario Planning". They layout different scenarios and monitor the underlying forces to determine which scenario is unfolding. One needs to keep an eye out for movements in their market landscape and make course corrections. Continuous monitoring for trigger events is fundamental to keeping the scenario planning effort active, and therefore, effective. It was a pleasure to discuss this topic along with some of the most experienced industry practitioners.” said Mohit Bhakuni, Founder & CEO of Contify.
Erik Glitman, CEO - Fletcher/CSI, said - “Delighted by the webinar’s response and thankful to each person who attended this webinar. Foresight is crucial in today’s competitive market, and scenario planning is a powerful tool when used to identify future strategic options. Coupled with market monitoring, it can help make much better and informed decisions, providing a competitive advantage. It was a pleasure sharing the spotlight with Mohit and Meena, and I hope the attendees gained valuable insights from the discussion.”
Meena Almaula, Consultant - Tata Business Excellence Group, said - “I’m encouraged with the response the webinar got, and appreciate our audience for taking the time to attend. It was a delight to share the stage with Mohit and Erik. In the present market landscape, you need to be prepared and have a description of the different possible scenarios you may need to act on. Having a market monitoring program based on scenario planning allows you to take the right decision when a possible scenario is triggered. I hope the attendees are able to incorporate this key takeaway in their competitive intelligence programs.”
