Scenario and Contingency Action Planning

Is your business ready to respond?

"By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail," Benjamin Franklin

Faced with unprecedented levels of global uncertainty how should you prepare your business for the future? As COVID-19 continues to have massive impact around the world, the uncertainty it has created for individuals, organisations and governments is not going away. In geographies where infection rates are dropping, concerns remain about second waves, whilst governments struggle to kick start economies that have slid into recession. 

If you are going to put effort and resources into preparing for the future it is logical to focus on potential future scenarios that will have the biggest impact on your business, both positive and negative. Contingency action plans are the element that makes your organisation ready to respond to any of these scenarios should they become a reality.

29 per cent of businesses admitted their companies had not developed any scenario and contingency plans to respond to different potential post-COVID-19 environments.” *

What is Scenario and Contingency Action Planning?

Scenario and Contingency Action Planning (SCAP) is a powerful methodology that can ensure your organisation is ready to respond to multiple potential futures and is capable of delivering competitive advantage.

Our Guarantee

We ensure your SCAP programme will:

  1. Identify the critical uncertainties that have the biggest impact on your business
  2. Create the top four future scenarios, including opportunities and challenges
  3. Develop and document contingency action plans to take advantage of these scenarios, with owners, timelines, resources and trigger points
  4. Define and document your Scenario and Contingency Action Planning process, to keep the scenario and contingency action plans ‘live’ in your business, via weekly and monthly planning processes

...If not, we’ll give you your money back!

Gain competitive advantage by being a step ahead of everyone else

In our experience, few organisations invest the necessary time and effort to ensure their contingency action plans are understood and have been rehearsed. So, preparing your organisation to execute a contingency action plan that meets the demands of the future will unlock competitive advantage.

“There are opportunities in every crisis and the best run businesses with strong planning processes are positioned to leverage those opportunities. Those without robust processes to align and prioritise, miss the superior planning ability to strengthen themselves and prosper.” Stuart Harman, Oliver Wight Partner
