At the Global Center for Digital Business Transformation, an IMD and Cisco initiative, they consider digital business agility (DBA) as critical to survival in the digital vortex. DBA is composed of three parts: hyperawareness, informed decision-making, and fast execution.

Corporate foresight is a prerequisite to survive in a fast changing and complex business environment. Anticipation of major trends and identifying opportunity spaces and threats are of key concern. This requires a structured and methodological approach, but should not be limited to larger corporations.
We can extend your strategic innovation capacity, either through co-sourcing corporate foresight capabilities, either through task or project specific sourcing.
With this service we provide you with an overview (or update) on the major emerging trends in your strategic space. We do not want to tell you what you already know.

We gauge elements like the soundness of your portfolio of strategic options, the effectiveness of your corporate foresight process, the skills of your people and finally your organization’s structural features and positioning within its ecosystem. At the end, you’ll see how you stack up and receive feedback on which priority actions you should consider to enable your organization reach a better futures ready position.
