ALIGNING TOMORROW'S KNOWLEDGE WORKER™
Under uncertainty, the traditional approaches to strategic planning must to be replaced by dynamic approaches that are quick to process disruptive change.
Sure, scenario planning is part of it. But it's much more than that. It requires a transformative shift in how we approach the planning process. If you stop and think about it, the concept of the multi-year strategic plan has gone the way of the CD for the foreseeable future. For that matter, those that dread the annual budgeting process can look at the bright side. That will hardly be necessary, because we just can’t plan that that far ahead with certainty.
Exoplanit™: create plans and forecasts under external uncertainty. Traditional planning needs to be replaced by a dynamic, phased approach that adjusts to disruption. Planning must be quick to process change. It must adapt to ongoing developments. It must embrace to stakeholder and community engagement. The key question to ask is: How can we modify our planning framework to process new info and adjust in a timely manner so that we can remain relevant?
Those that get it right will offer solutions that bring value to consumers beyond their products and services. There needs to be a shift from product selling to problem solving. One could argue, it should have always been this way. So, let’s just accept that as a silver lining. The key question to ask is: how do we plan to provide solutions and solve problems via products and services that truly meet the current needs of consumers?
Master planners can help you solve problems for a variety of planning use cases. For example, you may want to adjust forecasts and apply across markets, apply resources effectively when you sense signs of rolling recovery or discover new market segments for as the new normal variants emerge.
To help guide you through disruption if you don't have the proper platform in place already to address your dynamic planning needs, a special 90-120 day program is available through a technology partner. The purpose of the program is to address your most pressing planning use cases rapidly at a special business disruption price point.
Exoplanit™ fractional master planners may be the right option for you if you have the technology in-house, but need temporary master planners to assist with creating new business models or help update planning scenarios with dynamic variables. We can't be any clearer on this; we simply cannot go back to pitching products and services in a purely promotional way, and we need dynamic planning capabilities to take action now.
We help harness the power of artificial intelligence, drive digital transformation and build digital teams via our future of work approach to knowledge worker alignment.
