Redefine The Future of Your Organization.

Let’s just come out and say it: the old approach to strategic planning is broken. What good is it making 2, 5 or even 10 year plans when none of us knows what will happen tomorrow?

Today’s leaders are facing a paradox. On one hand, it is essential to create clear plans and goals that will help a team create consensus and directions. On the other hand, we already know that those plans will be immediately under threat from technological changes like AI—not to mention other seen and unforeseen shifts in the market.

In this environment, organizational adaptability and innovation are essential. In order for these to be more than buzzwords, they must apply to the strategic planning process itself.

It is essential to reimagine how you approach strategic planning in order for your team to see those plans as authentic—and for them to be able to adapt when something changes.

Don’t worry: we know how to help.

Strategic Planning Facilitator:
Process Overview

Our strategic planning process is based on two core principles: Backcasting and Emergent Change.

We help clients translate these foundational ideas into a tailored transformational journey.

Backcasting

Backcasting is an innovative strategic planning framework that is widely used in science and technology companies—in any context that requires redefining the future.

Unlike “forecasting”, which takes a current state and projects it forward, Backcasting starts with an optimal end state and then projects backwards to generate the steps necessary to get there.

Emergent Change

In conventional change management, a final outcome is prescribed by top management, and organizational buy-in is expected/demanded.

By contrast, Emergent Change prioritizes creating the optimal conditions for change, like trust and effective communication.

The outcomes of Emergent Change are often totally unknown at the beginning of the process—similar to the discoveries created through the Scientific Method.
