SAIPA & Invictus Leader to host 2 workshops on strategic foresight for SMEs.

Published Jun 28, 2023


In our busy modern world, the only thing we can rely on is that things will change.

In the past few years, we have seen a global pandemic, an ongoing war, social and political unrest, the rise of remote work and other momentous shifts that have changed the face of the business landscape. In light of the constant need to meet new challenges, planning for the future requires a significant amount of strategic thinking.

That being said, the future brings more than just challenges. Preparing for future changes in behaviour, market trends and purchasing habits can lead to a wealth of opportunities, giving any business – big or small – a significant competitive edge.

So how can we prepare for what’s to come?

The answer is deceptively simple: strategic foresight and planning.

This is a structured and systematic way of anticipating and better preparing for the changes that the future will bring. By exploring the possibilities of the next few years, businesses are able to assess the opportunities and challenges of various plausible futures. Using these insights, companies are then able to make better decisions today, and will prepare them for tomorrow.

With the proper preparation, you can not only save your business from becoming redundant, but reach a lew level of productivity and performance in 2023 and beyond.
