Working the Future Strategic foresight

Helping leaders make informed and future-ready decisions

 

Every business is facing increasingly complex operating conditions driven by major shifts in socio-cultural attitudes, economics, geopolitics and the wider environmental crisis.

By sharing our future of work trend intelligence and analysis, we help business leaders redesign operating strategies for enhanced commercial resilience.

Deep understanding

We know the drivers that are already shaping tomorrow’s workplace and will help you understand what’s positively and negatively impacting operations.

We know what is likely to be undermining operating excellence and will help you introduce strategies for enhanced business performance and long-term market resilience.

Be future ready

It all starts with a conversation with our partner Cathryn Barnard, a future of work specialist, with a career spanning three decades. 

She will explore what’s happening and what matters most to your business.

Based on that understanding she will develop a 2-hour Strategic Foresight session focused on up to three of the meta-trends specific to your most pressing business challenges. 

Together you will unpick the business risk and commercial opportunity of these trends on your organisation.

Cathryn will offer insights and share case examples to help you choose how to future-proof your key strategic imperatives.

The Future of Work | Working the Future

Following the session a summary report will be provided outlining your next steps. You'll also receive a complimentary copy of Foresight Focus, our annually-updated report that tracks ten key meta-trends transforming the future of work, containing 50 actionable insights.

 

Make sustainable decisions

As a result of their Strategic Foresight session, clients become empowered to make timely, accurate and informed decisions that:

  • mitigate risk and leverage opportunity 
  • optimise organisational agility for better navigation of complex trading conditions
  • de-risk labour market uncertainties allowing you access to talent and skills on an on-demand basis
  • reduce staffing turnover and associated costs  

 

Get in touch to discuss how our knowledge can help you make informed and future-ready decisions.
