Learning Resilient Futures

Change your mind to chart your future

If we didn’t previously understand and have direct experience of an explosively disruptive change, we do now.

The extreme weather events of 2019/20, the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated social-economic fall-out have all been clear illustrations of how quickly change can, and will, happen – especially in this decade and beyond.

While the feeling of being disrupted can be disorienting and can leave individuals and organizations feeling like things are not in their control, the frameworks and tools that Learning Resilient Futures provides helps you chart the way forward – together with your people.

In the COVID Economy, it is vital to quickly adopt and scale the mindset, skill-set, strategic focus and capability that will ensure that you are effectively addressing both opportunity and risk in immediate disruption.

At the same time, it is critical to ensure your people are equipped with the skills to anticipate and leverage the further disruption that will undoubtedly emerge over time.

Without an ability to anticipate disruption and ‘change ahead of change’, your organization may risk suffering the consequences of any fallout from disruption.

Start Small, Grow Smart

Learning Resilient Futures courses are available for people of all skill levels and roles within organizations and are based around Strategy in Action (SiA). As a framework and set of tools, SiA is used to generate agile strategy. It is perfectly suited to planning in any context and ideal for addressing disruptive change such as that which is being experienced through the rapidly emerging COVID Economy.

SiA can be applied at any scale – project, team, department, organization, or industry. Powerfully harnessed at multiple levels of the organization, it creates strategic synergy for all people by providing a common framework and language for thinking, communicating, formulating and executing agile strategy.

Resilient Futures offers customized courses for organizations and industries as well as public courses for individuals and small teams.

All courses are self-paced and self-directed. Facilitated workshops and coaching sessions can also be added to ensure that the program is fully tailored to your organization’s specific context and needs.
