Linking Scenario Planning and Decision Making | Dr. Alexander Van de Putte Scenario Planning & Decision Making IE Business School, Spain
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Dr. Alexander Van de Putte. In this Presentation he discuss the following:
Strategic planning is a challenging task during turbulent times and companies need to be prepared for the unexpected. As a result, companies need to navigate uncertain and uncharted waters as they move from planning to implementation, and from investment to returns. Understanding the key factors that shape the global, regional and industry environments through a process of scenario planning, allows companies to address uncertainty in a flexible way and benefit from tremendous opportunities while reducing the impact of uncertainties on company cash flows. A key requirement of scenario driven strategic planning is the development of a Strategic Early Warning System to constantly monitor key signals and discontinuities. This approach dramatically improves the strategic and operational readiness of companies and to make decisions about the optimal timing to scale up or abandon strategic options.

Leadership and Decision Making | Victor H. Vroom BearingPoint Professor of Management & Psychology Yale School of Management
This document is the soft copy of the presentation by Professor Victor H. Vroom. For several decades, Professor Victor H. Vroom and his colleagues at Yale University have been doing research on leadership styles. This research has been driven by two objectives. The first objective was to explore the differences in leadership styles used in different countries and organizations around the world. Where did these differences come from and how are they changing with globalization? The second objective was is to build a normative or prescriptive situational model of the leadership development process which can serve as a guide to leaders in adapting their leadership styles to the challenges they face.
To date, Professor Vroom’s research has involved a quarter of a million leaders from around the world. It has also produced a computer-based normative model of leadership called Expert System, designed to aid managers in matching their styles to other specific challenges they face.
In this Presentation, he covered the following areas of decision making:
- The changes in leadership necessary in a knowledge economy
- The situational factors that you need to consider in choosing an effective style to lead in your organization

How to craft robust strategy through scenarios | Dr. Awais Siraj MD Genzee Solutions
The presentation is the soft copy of the webinar conducted by Dr. Awais Siraj; this presentation highlights the following: Scenarios are descriptions of a plausible future(s) and outline a set of events or circumstances that would affect an organization performance. Scenarios help in understanding long term view in a world of great uncertainty. Scenario planning opens the future to multiple perspectives rather than a single, business-as-usual, view of what the future will hold. Scenario approach is a methodology, providing space for input from stakeholders, expert and non-traditional even maverick views. The methodology is capable of integrating the multitude of seemingly unrelated, often chaotic, inputs into a limited number of coherent, internally consistent stories about the future; thus providing a basis for building robust strategies and organizations.
- Understand Social, Technological, Economic, Ecological and Political Environment concerning an organization and link it to contextual (Strengths and Weaknesses) environment
- Analyze driving forces and key factors
- Explore multiple, plausible, pathways into the future. (Scenario Planning)
- Craft a robust strategy and vision from environment or Scenarios
