Scenario Planning Masterclass by ValuEndow Consulting
Developing a long-term strategy requires establishing views about the future and charting out coordinated actions and implementation plans to achieve desired goals. We are all, in general, heavily influenced by conditions in the present and our belief systems predisposed with what we have seen or read about in the past; so while articulating our views about the future, the majority of us as forecasters extrapolate from the past.
The uncertainties are abounding and affecting us deeply in most of our present-day businesses. We live in a world of increasingly complex interconnections of geopolitics, fast-changing technology, societal & market forces, changing regulations, and unforeseen discontinuity like present COVID 19 pandemic. It is crucial that today’s strategy development exercises adopt a new approach, new thinking, and new processes to take care of the uncertainties and of challenging our assumptions about what the future holds.
Scenarios are powerful tools for addressing what is both fundamentally significant and highly inexplicable – the future. Scenarios help us to understand and appreciate the risk exposure that organizations face and those forces that shape large-scale investment and major strategic initiatives. Good scenarios help us to improve the quality of corporate conversation on strategy, leading to a better quality of investment and reduced corporate liabilities.
This course will help and guide the participants to learn the art and science of scenario planning from a very basic level to attain mastery.

Mental Health and Well-being in Times of Global Crisis
The coronavirus outbreak has sparked a major global mental health crisis. Maybe the pandemic will be brought under control in some time in the near future, but the stress, anxiety, and depression will continue to affect people and communities.
Not only the number of deaths crossing 300,000 (as on date); there has been an immense psychological effect on a vast number of people who lost or at the risk of losing livelihood, have been separated from loved ones, or have suffered from drastic lockdown orders.
A study conducted in Ethiopia showed 33% of the population is suffering from depression-like symptoms. Other studies indicated mental stress is as high as 60% in Iran and 45% in the United States. A Canadian study shows nearly half of the health care workers need psychological support. The story here in India is not different.
It is natural for many people to feel trapped in thought patterns of fear, anxiety, and helplessness, adversely affecting their mental health and well-being. Lack of access to their usual support system and coping strategies can make the situation further worse.
But the good news is that even in these trying times we can learn to maintain positive mental health and achieve personal growth. While the present crisis is certainly painful and difficult, it doesn’t control the outcome of your life. There are many aspects of your life you can control, modify, and grow with. That is what we focused on in this webinar today.
