What makes Strategic Planning Indispensable?

Intake Opening Soon 15:00 - 18:00 Mid-Level / Advanced

Join us as we explore the fundamental principles that underpin strategic planning and discover how it serves as a catalyst for sustainable growth and resilience.


Peter Drucker, the father of modern management theory, is quoted as saying that “In turbulent times, the first task of management is to make sure of the institution’s capacity for survival, to make sure of its structural strength and soundness, of its capacity to survive a blow, to adapt to sudden change, and to avail itself of new opportunities.”

Nonetheless, some business leaders mistakenly believe that in times of great uncertainty, business and strategic planning lose their relevance. However, the reality is that planning methodologies must evolve to encompass a broader spectrum of scenarios.

Through engaging discussions and practical insights, we’ll uncover the critical components that make strategic planning an essential cornerstone of strategic management. Whether you’re a seasoned executive or a budding entrepreneur, this workshop promises to equip you with the knowledge and tools necessary to navigate the complexities of today’s business environment with confidence and clarity.


  • Introduction : Insights on Strategic Planning in Turbulent Times
  • Scenario Planning and the Search for Coincidences and Differences
  • Reflecting on Scenario Practice; New Forms of Coherence

  • Scenarios Providing Clarity to Address Turbulence
  • New Realities in Scenario Thinking and Practice
