Running a business is about so much more than how many products or services you sell today — or even how many you’ll sell tomorrow. It’s also about careful, effective strategic planning and constant process improvement over a long period of time. With the proper combination of diligence and evidence-based predictions, it’s possible to put a business strategy in motion that will set your organization up for future success.

Wargaming and Virtual War Games
When it’s time to pressure test your understanding of your position in the market in relation to your competition, you can benefit from our business wargaming services. Through careful pre-planning, the creation of briefing books and a highly engaging wargaming workshop, business leaders can quickly assess how their market maneuvers and counter-measures stack up against their competitors’ expected strategies.
The key to effective strategic planning is knowing when and where to make improvements. Business war games present the ideal method to determine where your strengths and weaknesses lie — with this information, you’ll be more equipped to make adjustments and find new ways to develop an edge over your competitors.
We can help break down siloed sectors of knowledge within your company by putting together cross-functional teams tasked with seizing specific opportunities that encourage fresh approaches and strategies. This process is especially effective when those teams are assigned to role-play as one of your competitors.
Putting a plan together is important, but it’s the plan implementation that matters most. That’s why our strategic planning consultants are committed to preparing clients for every scenario, possibility or transformation. From pharmaceutical and healthcare organizations to financial services and technology companies, every organization in a major market sector can benefit from having a more agile approach to its own business strategy.

Using leading practices and relevant examples, our market intelligence training courses are highly interactive and include exercises that provide participants with an engaging and practical learning experience.

From our talented and motivated communicators, your team receives a level of instruction that’s geared specifically toward your company and market sector in a manner that no online course or internet search can hope to match.
In addition, our personalized approach to all of our training sessions and workshops means your return on this investment is even greater. Participating decision-makers are given the chance to have their questions answered, concerns addressed and experiences taken into account when discussing the benefits and applications of CI. Plus, every training session is supported by the latest research and teaching materials, so all lessons are timely and applicable to the issues today’s businesses must grapple with.
As a business leader, it’s important for you to have a knowledge and understanding of the possible scenarios that could affect your organization, customers and key stakeholders. With executive coaching from an expert, you’ll have the opportunity to learn how to foresee potential outcomes and put together a planning process that will account for them.
As part of our Strategic Planning portfolio, we specialize in awakening and broadening clients’ perspectives for the future through our unique approach to scenario planning. ‘When executives are looking to empower and unify their leadership, our scenario-planning workshops deliver an experience that helps clearly identify what’s at stake in the current and future business landscapes.
Participants in scenario planning will gain a deeper awareness of the trends, threats and opportunities their organization must be prepared for. Plus, they’ll learn how having a realistic strategy in place to deal with these issues can help positively impact income, profitability and customer loyalty. In addition, by examining the implications of their strategies within a given scenario, decision-makers can better gauge if their responses to everything from new product launches to competitors’ activities are likely to have the intended impact. Our strategic planning sessions will, as a result, allow business leaders to feel more confident about each choice they make.
Vendor Evaluation Service
As business grows, procurement teams and other decision makers add more vendors to their portfolio of suppliers to have choices and to mitigate risks. It can be a challenge for companies to identify and select the right vendors, especially in the early stages of their search before discussions can get more speciﬁc and complex. Our service allows clients to better understand how innovation and advances in technologies in a potential future partner can impact their businesses, short- and long-term.
