About I run a strategic futures practice that helps people in organisations prepare for the challenges of the future. I work with tertiary education institutions, government departments and non-profits, helping them to do environmental scanning and to build a long term strategic thinking capacity before writing their strategic plans.
Maree Conway @klasasy Sorry for the delay - the point I am making in slide 132 is that if you don't scan for change in the external environment, then you are effectively putting your head in the sand - ignoring something doesn't mean you won't have to deal with something one way or the other. The point in slide 133 is simply to say that if you are prepared for change as a result of having done scanning and you understanding implications for your organisation - and how you will respond should a particular change eventuate - then you will have a much more enjoyable life.
