Shaping the Future
Applications: Useful in every organization which has correctly explored the future and possess a plan of action. Strategy sessions focused on shaping the future allow you to move on to the next level – the level of future-directed actions. The method works well in organizations with a narrow group of decision makers.
Method: It differs from traditional strategy sessions (geared toward exploration and preparation). Firstly, input data is obtained at earlier stages of long-term strategic analysis. Secondly, the information is crucial to the functioning of a given organization and the selection of the participants for the session is organised differently. Thirdly, the sessions themselves are conducted according to a different scheme, a scheme aimed at using future shaping tools. The 4CF team assumes the role of facilitators and provides aid in conducting the sessions and utilising the necessary tools.
The end results (deliverables) of strategy sessions are largely dependent on the nature of a given project. However, all have one common feature: they allow the management of an organization to devise a step by step plan of action which will allow them to actively influence the development of events.
