The World Economic Forum reports that “leaders are trying to better understand new business models that will enable them to survive in a world permeated by frequent shocks”.
Meanwhile, management theory has long stressed that leaders have been facing volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (‘VUCA’) futures; but business schools now teach another acronym, where matters have been further complicated by a world that is ‘BANI’ as in brittle, anxious, nonlinear and incomprehensible.
Dealing with these new challenges calls for new approaches. Hence the need for greater understanding and usage of the role that foresight plays in planning and implementation, when making strategic decisions with confidence has become increasingly difficult.
That’s why Selbey Labs constantly scan for emerging issues and signals of the future, working on catalytic foresight and scenario planning activities that illuminate potential opportunities and threats facing businesses.
To do so, we utilise a dynamic methodology that empowers teams and organisations to develop the insights and skills required to successfully prepare, adapt and thrive in a changing world.
