Uncovering Opportunities and Threats
We identified and analyzed megatrends in the agriculture sector including
- land productivity
- consumer trends
- climate change
- water usage
- emerging technologies
We uncovered opportunities and threats and defined possible scenarios and consequences. In collaboration with the executive leadership team, we developed and expanded insights within each major trend and created a decision and planning framework to assess the implications and place them into strategic planning time horizons. The organization uses our planning framework for their strategic investment and portfolio development activities as part of their annual planning cycles.
Refining the Foresighting Process
As we completed the foresighting process, the leadership team had agreed on the critical issues to address immediately and which issues were less urgent. Through collaboration, the leadership team defined the organization’s purpose, vision, and strategic focus for the next five-10 years and continues to incorporate megatrend analysis into their annual strategic planning process, and this helps in their ongoing foresighting process.
