Strategic Planning During Volatile Times
Transforming Advanced Analytics into a Distinct Competitive Advantage
Increased uncertainty is the hallmark of volatile times. It requires planners to be at their best—to consider a wider range of scenarios that can include alternate price levels and capital spending targets, as well as more strategic options regarding buying or divesting assets. Volatile times also bring cost cutting to the forefront. While necessary in times like these, cutting must be done correctly or it can damage a company’s performance potential long after the crisis has ended.
Today’s environment means there is less margin for error. Planners are finding it more difficult to “get it right” with the technology they have on hand.
What is needed to plan strategically in difficult times? It starts with a willingness to explore alternative futures, good or bad, and the ability to understand what levers the company can pull in order to affect those potential outcomes, such as spending levels, debt levels, or capital allocation. It requires an evaluation system wherein scenarios can be rapidly generated, while taking into account the market, resource, price, and geopolitical factors which the company is unable to control. And it requires the innate ability to compare and interrogate these dissimilar scenarios with greater speed and perlustration than previously possible.
Companies that achieve this elevated insight into their corporate portfolios will make better decisions, avoid foolish ones, and ultimately develop a distinct advantage over competitors still relying on the systems and models of the past.
