Talent & Executive Programmes to explore the future & strengthen your strategy
Talent & Executive programmes
Radical change is common. Innovation changes the future faster than ever before. Disruptive transitions are turning sectors and markets upside down. New players and success formulas respond smart and at lightning speed. Because developing new competences and business models takes time, organisations need to explore, think through and analyse 'their' future more, better and sharper.
To challenge beliefs and stretch the imagination. ‘You only understand it when you see it', said Johan Cruijff. Foreseeing and anticipation is essential to stay ahead. Because the future emerges from the present, we can know much more about what can and will happen. It provides valuable insights into attractive opportunities and strategic risks and much earlier.
Scenario analysis and future mapping are indispensable for exploring, knowing and creating the future. We have incorporated them into 8 in-company Talent & Executive Programmes that can be delivered as stand-alone courses, be part of any leadership and management programme and be mixed and matched to specific requirements and preferences.

Scenario analysis is a powerful method for thinking through the strategic implications of different directions in which the future may develop. The programme introduces participants to the practice and principles of scenario thinking in order to explore the future with relevant and challenging future scenarios and define strategy and policy.
Scenario Analysis for New Business Development
A.k.a. Strategic Business Innovation. To remain successful and respond to disruptive innovations and transitions, organisations must continuously renew their portfolio of value propositions. In the programme, participants learn how to use scenario analysis to identify and exploit future growth opportunities, develop and challenge new propositions and simulate a diverse range of market conditions.
Future Mapping of Transitions
Future mapping combines the power of different methods to foresee the future of a sector or market in a structured way in the short and medium term (3 to 7 years ahead). In the programme, participants apply future mapping to accurately map and analyse transitions and market developments in the medium-term, monitor future forces, and generate strategic options.
Scenario Analysis for Governments
Governments must simultaneously respond to sudden changes in the short term and design longer-term strategic transformations to address societal challenges and transitions. Scenario analysis can play a role in both by seeing, thinking through and understanding different circumstances and developing and testing policy visions, options and interventions to deal with them effectively.
Strategy Development for Management Teams
Winning players meet current and future demands and preferences with strong strategic success formulas and cleverly composed portfolios. In the programme, participants learn to analyse, design and strengthen these for their own organisation. They explore future market developments to discover attractive opportunities and determine which innovations and competences are essential to take full advantage of them.
Scenario Planning for Health(care) Organisations
The healthcare sector is at the beginning of a series of disruptive transitions that will turn it upside down. In what way and how quickly these transitions will unfold and what the consequences will be, is surrounded by uncertainty. In the programme participants learn to foresee the course and implications of health(care) transitions and to design strategic transformations to respond to change as it unfolds.
Strategic Risk Management
Strategic risks and uncertainties have a major impact on the future success of organisations and can even threaten their existence. Yet many organisations underestimate them and lack overview and insight. In the programme, participants apply scenario analysis and future mapping to map them, monitor them and develop options to mitigate and manage them.
