Early warning system
Respond quickly to change
The unique online environment monitor makes the outside world tangible. This tool helps organizations to monitor trends and uncertainties in the outside world in real time. The Environment Monitor enables you to learn from your environment and to prepare your organization for the future. You see changes coming faster and you can switch faster and adjust your business model or strategy!
Continue to monitor your scenarios
The basis of the Environment Monitor lies in the critical uncertainties for your organization. These are unpredictable developments with a lot of impact that underlie scenarios. In the tool you can link change indicators to critical uncertainties. By regularly monitoring these you will get a better impression of which uncertainties and scenarios are approaching and thus become more relevant. This is important information for timely strategic adjustments.
Certainties and uncertainties
A trend is a recognizable pattern in the environment. The trend is pointing in a certain direction. The impact on your organization differs. Just like the urgency: when should you respond to the trend?
The direction of many developments is unclear. Is it going left or right? Will it be a lot or a little? High or low? Developments cannot be predicted. They are insecure. The most important are the critical uncertainties.
Environmental monitor in 5 steps
Step 1: Determine monitor needs
Determine the trends, critical uncertainties and scenarios you want to monitor.
Step 2: Change indicators
Change indicators are the direction indicators. Link change indicators to the key uncertainties of scenarios to be monitored.
Step 3: Consult the expert panel
The expert panel consists of people from different disciplines within and outside the organization. The panel periodically assesses the likelihood of the change indicators via a questionnaire. You determine the composition of the panel and the frequency of monitoring.
Step 4: Dashboard
The dashboard shows the likelihood of the key uncertainties, scenarios and indicators and also shows the relevance of strategic options. This dashboard is created by our unique calculation model. You can also compare groups or measurement moments in the dashboard.
Step 5: Future blog
Share the conclusions of the Environmental Monitor and enter into a strategic dialogue with each other (internal and / or external stakeholders) about the implications of the results.
Don't run after the facts. Be prepared. Monitor your environment.
