The goal of this course is simple: to help you foresee your post-pandemic future.
Now, in 2021, we have been through more than a year of the pandemic. The “panic phase” of the Coronavirus crisis is behind us (mostly), but now a new challenge awaits: We must all formulate a strategy for being successful in the post-COVID future. The problem is that the changes brought about by COVID have made this future very difficult to predict.
On the one hand, COVID forced us all to rethink our needs, and find (or invent) new ways to get things done. On the one hand, inventiveness is a good thing, right? Yes… but. “But” because on the other hand, adapting to these changes has had one very big consequence: all of these “temporary fixes” reshaped our operating terrain, and many of these adaptations will become the way we do things from now on. In other words, the adaptations will turn out not to be temporary, but permanent.
People are calling this the “New Normal” – a changed landscape in which you will have to operate – one that is very different from the pre-COVID world. What could this terrain be like for you?
That’s what this course is about: helping you visualize your organization’s New Normal – the one that is taking shape now, and which may well stay in place through 2021 and beyond.
If you want to prepare your organization for what’s ahead, you need to get a handle – now – on how different this operating terrain might be. Scenario planning is a very practical method to foresee how your future landscape could change. It allows you to explore alternative futures that could realistically emerge around you, with the potential to turn your business upside down. It’s 2021 – high time to think ahead and anticipate these changes, so you’re not taken by surprise.
This accelerated course leads you step-by-step through the scenario planning process, so you can:
•foresee how your landscape might continue to develop, if the COVID landscape lasts a while.
•foresee scenarios for your post-Coronavirus landscape – one that has been taking shape over the past few months, will continue to change, and will potentially influence how you do business for years to come.
By investing 1 hour of your time in this intensive course, you will learn a solid, logical methodology for understanding how your organization might face very different futures.
Note – there are no exercises or quizzes: just an intensive learning experience, taught by a world-class expert.
