Environmental Analysis and Scenario Generation: Shape the future of your company!

Systematic Identification and Evaluation of Future Developments as the Basis for your Strategic Alignment

Shortages of parts, production outages, fluctuating demand: Recent crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the conflict in Ukraine have significant impacts on companies and their supply chains. They highlight the challenging environment in which companies must currently operate and show new requirements for supply chain management.

Factors such as crises, technological progress, sustainability, or changed political framework conditions offer opportunities as well as risks for companies in the production, distribution, and logistics sector. In order to ensure competitiveness, logistical processes must be transformed and designed to be resilient to future developments.

The future, however, is uncertain. It is influenced by various developments and sometimes takes a different course than expected. Nevertheless, if decisions that affect the future must be made, orientation towards the current situation and consideration of various likely developments is necessary.

The scenario technique method offers a great approach to derive and evaluate future developments. It enables a look into the future and helps companies to prepare for probable but also for unexpected events. It offers companies the opportunity to react to changes in the environment at an early stage, to reduce perceived uncertainties and to identify new potential business areas.

Identify opportunities and risks early with us and adjust your supply chain strategy so that you can persist and continue to be successful in a constantly changing world.
