Dealing with Turbulence and Uncertainty

In our experience organisations that constantly and pro-actively monitor their operating environment, know their customers and act on the intelligence and insights from this process, consistently outperform their competitors.

We therefore developed The Operating Environment Module as part of The Strategic FIT Program that we have successfully applied over the last 20 years in hundreds of organisations worldwide. This process is available to you, to apply in your organisation to ensure that you too outsmart, outperform and outlast your competitors, especially in a turbulent and uncertain operating environment.

How will my Organisation Benefit?

  • REDUCE YOUR BUSINESS RISK by anticipating how your Industry is likely to change
  • KNOW THE MACRO-ENVIRONMENTAL VARIABLES that will be imposed on you so that you can PRO-ACTIVELY RESPOND
  • Identify and act on EARLY SIGNALS of CHANGE before your competitors
  • PROFIT from POTENTIAL OPPORTUNITIES presented by emerging trends

Through The Operating Environment Module You’ll Learn How to….

  • Effectively scan your macro-environment and identify variables that are likely to cause change in your industry
  • Assess the potential impact (either positive or negative) that environmental changes may have on your business
  • Identify and monitor ‘soft signals’ in the operating environment that would trigger a change in your strategy
  • Apply the Strategic Cube to identify your strengths and weaknesses relative to direct or emerging competitiors
  • Assess the likely moves competitors may make in response to potential changes in the industry and to your tactical or  strategic moves
  • Review the current and relative attractiveness of the market within which you operate
  • Develop plausible scenarios that allow you to plan for all potential alternative futures

Why Should We Use This Process?

It is our experience that although people within the organisation have a detailed understanding of their functional area, this knowledge and wisdom is very rarely shared in a unified and cohesive way. In addition we have frequently found that even though Executives may have worked together for many years, they still tend to have widely differing interpretations of common industry terminology and different perspectives of the business. This leads to ineffective and misleading communications and ultimately sub-standard performance.

You can create an enormous amount of value by bringing these people together and using our structured, proven process to create new insights about your organisation and develop a shared perspective of your collective wisdom. In addition, you can run this process over and over again as your organisation and industry evolves.

By using The Strategic FIT Operating Environment Module you will:

  • Engage all key stakeholders by providing new and different perspectives of your organisation
  • Interact, debate and discuss the issues in your operating environment
  • Extract the collective wisdom from different areas of your organisation
  • Provide a forum and a framework within which superior solutions and ideas will evolve
  • Avoid an inefficient, ineffective “talk-fest” by using a structured, proven methodology

What is included in The Operating Environment Module?

  1. A Detailed Facilitator’s Manual – We provide you with all the information you need to run a successful workshop from pre-planning to final outputs
  2. A Full Set of Slides – Easily guide your participants through each step of the process with this powerful, visual companion to the Facilitator’s Manual
  3. A Participant Workbook – This contains all of the concepts worksheets for the workshop. It allows each participant to express their learnings in their own way. It is meant to be a “living record” of the outputs of the workshop that the key stakeholders can refer to over and over again
  4. Access for each participant to an Online Diagnostic Questionnaire – The results of this questionnaire provide vital inputs to the workshop process
  5. 60 days access to our eTrain-the-Trainer Program – This is an online Question and Answer forum that gives you direct access to our experienced Strategic FIT Facilitators

How Do I Apply this Process in My Organisation?

The Strategic FIT Operating Environment Module can be used on it’s own or as part of The Strategic FIT Program which is an integrated, holistic Strategic Planning process.

To get great results from this Module you will need to allocate a person within your team to act as Facilitator.

The Facilitator will need to:

  1. Familiarise themselves with all of the materials.
  2. Ensure that each Participant undertakes the pre-course reading
  3. Ensure that each Participant completes the online FITS Diagnostic Questionnaire

You will need to allocate one full day to complete the Operating Environment Workshop. All key stakeholders must attend for the entire day.
