Times are uncertain. That brings opportunities for growth and change as well as new, complex threats. It places considerable demands on leadership at executive and board level. Managers are tasked to improve outcomes in the face of future uncertainty, and boards are inescapably party to that, if it they are to fulfil their mandate to protect and increase shareholder and stakeholder value.
The future-preparedness audit and interventions offered here are designed to improve company or organization readiness for shifts or surprises in future industry environments. This is more than risk awareness. It is about navigating and optimizing in the face of landscape change, which offers both opportunities and risks.
A future-preparedness audit provides the board with a way to determine whether such preparedness adequately exists in the company, and guide to where and how to improve it if necessary.
