For years, many companies have used scenario planning as a tool to help understand what the future might bring and a framework for how business leaders could plan and prepare. In the current environment, this type of planning is particularly challenging since the short-term unknowns are in some ways greater than the longer-term uncertainty. In this episode of Resilient, Deloitte Consulting LLP Managing Director Andrew Blau and Salesforce’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning Peter Schwartz discuss how executives can use scenario planning to ask questions to help anticipate, pivot toward, and create new opportunities. They also share practical advice across four possible scenarios from the Deloitte-Salesforce collaboration, The world remade by COVID-19. Planning scenarios for resilient leaders, to help business leaders tune their radar to see potential longer-term change happening before it creates surprise.
