Is your company a Superstar?

Since 1976 the painting of the Dodo is hanging in the office of the Head of Shell’s Global Business Environment, currently led by Jeremy Bentham. After the Scenario Plans ‘Oceans’ and ‘Mountains’, in Spring 2018 the latest scenario plan ‘Sky’ was launched. ‘Sky’ assumes that the world in 2070 still needs 50-60 million oil barrels/day and describes what must be done to meet the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement. Everybody who makes analyses knows that we have to re-organize the complete world economy within the next 50 years. Jeremy Bentham: “It’s my accountability that Shell doesn’t become a Dodo”.

Predictive Foresights, a basis for Success!

We all know that the “holy grail” of forecasting is 50% or in fact “cross or coin”. No governmental institute or agency neither any multinational company is able to produce reliable forecasts. They have tried to do this for decades without being able to deliver trustworthy results. However, with the “Predictive Foresights” service it is possible to leverage the ‘holy grail’ of forecasting towards direction of future development of any kind with 75-85% accuracy. Furthermore the need for Big Data Storage & Analysis has become obsolete as the “Predictive Foresights” service only needs a tiny amount of data to effectively produce results in comparison.

Managing the present versus managing the future

Professor Jaap Koelewijn’s quote is telling, pointing out that a number of multinationals may be reaching the end of their company life-cycle. The financial press reports that an increasing number of hedge funds put heavy pressure on those boards of management to divest and/or to split up their companies to meet shareholder value. Management’s answer throughout 2017 has typically been to make ‘unrealistic’ promises that they will somehow succeed in meeting shareholder expectations. In addition, they took the easy and relatively straightforward way forward of cost-cutting and increasing consumer prices.

The phenomenon of hub firms

Traditional companies spend much of their time monitoring start-ups. Likewise, the financial world does this by monitoring the fintech sector. Should we fear those start-ups or should we fear others? In his new book, “The Day after Tomorrow”, Peter Hinssen tells us that we should fear potential new competitors who will take over interactions with customers. The following eight companies: Google, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Baidu, Tencent and Alibaba, are the new ‘hub firms’ that will shape our collective future.

Black Swans, Grey Swans and Gray Rhinos

Every manager in every company business function is part of a high-impact VUCA world: Volatility – Uncertainty – Complexity – Ambiguity. In this VUCA world, Nassim Nicholas Taleb published his famous book “The Black Swan” in 2007. Based on Taleb’s Black Swans, we have been using the phenomenon of Grey Swans with our unique Grey Swan Analysis. In the spring of 2016, Michele Wucker came out with her book “The Gray Rhino”, on the basis of which we added ‘Gray Rhino Analysis’ to our strategic intelligence practices.

Jeff Immelt’s lessons on leadership

It is interesting to see how Jeff Immelt created parts of his strategic intelligence picture. After Jack Welch’s period of leadership (from 1980 to 2001), Jeff Immelt transformed the 125-year-old GE into a start-up, a digital industrial company. “We compete in today’s world to solve tomorrow’s challenges”, he said, quoted in HBR September/October 2017.

Test your company’s strategy

Most of us recognize this ‘annually recurring ritual’ in the company planning cycle which in most cases is based on an inside view. It becomes a breeding ground for all sorts of biases that subconsciously give more weight to facts that back management’s view than inconvenient ones that don’t. Being inwardly-focused and not anticipating competitors’ moves is remarkably superficial and is another breeding ground for competitive surprises. To overcome this, management is forced to think ‘strategically’ and needs evidence-based strategic intelligence.
