Facing aggressive growth targets coupled with a need to significantly increase their workforce, an international division of a media and entertainment organization partnered with Kedge to establish a foresight competency across their global regions.
Environmental Scanning is exploring and interpreting both internal and external environments in order to better understand how trends and drivers of change will likely impact your business. Creating a system of scanning will not only move you from a practice of “surviving” to “thriving,” but also promotes the “future-empowered” organization.
Talent management is not just a human resources issue, impacting every area of business development in both our short and long-range futures. A Fortune 100 company asked us to help them explore the emerging issues around talent and work, making their strategy and solutions more robust – and understanding how global talent is central to building aspirational futures.
“Kedge led our company in a day-long Futures Retreat that was truly transformative. In one short day, they enabled us to dream out our future and better understand the strategies and precautions we need to take in order to be successful. They were especially good at crafting a tight agenda and sticking to it, drawing out all members of the team and helping us create a concrete action plan to reach our goals. Thank you Kedge! I can’t imagine money better spent, or a better firm to lead us in this important work.”Julia Pimsleur, Founder and CEO, Little Pim

Kedge is proud to announce the launch of our unique innovation program called “Wicked Opportunities.” In this program, we turn the idea of “wicked” or complex problems on its head. Instead of running from complexity and attempting to create the most simple answers through linear thinking, we believe that complexity offers us a broader and more expansive landscape from which to discover new and exciting solutions to long-standing problems. Such an environment also promotes the meshing or convergence of previously siloed disciplines, creating a whole new field of tools and ideas that lead us toward abundant futures rather than collapse and defeat. These two concepts – embracing complexity and converging disciplines – are the heart of the Wicked Opportunities program.
