Scenario Planning • There is on-going turbulence of the world economy • Scenario planning is being increasingly used in the public, private and NGO sectors. • Asset managers are realising that 80% of their concern needs to be with the global business environment, and 20% with the specific investment – a reversal from the boom years to 2008. Our speaker will share a case study with you: • A set of scenarios for India and China to 2015, examining how they were generated, what the scenarios got right and what not, lessons learnt. 5

India and China to 2015 Robust decisions in uncertain times • Study commissioned by the City of London in 2006 • The City was concerned at the impact of India and China on London’s Financial Services – Were India and China the same or different? – Were India and China a threat or an opportunity? • 5,000 copies of the report were distributed • Report in pdf on the SAMI web site – www.samiconsulting.co.uk.under News & Publications. www.samiconsulting.co.uk 8

  10. 10. Comparing China and India Robust decisions in uncertain times • It is a mistake to see them as homogeneous – there are many Chinas and Indias. • The dynamics of development apply to China or India as much as they do anywhere else. • China or India can be thought of as a producer, a political power or a marketplace, each raising distinct questions leading to distinct approaches • Our approach was - what are these countries going to be like as places to do business, in which to invest, with which to collaborate or compete? www.samiconsulting.co.uk 10

  13. 13. The big questions for India Robust decisions in uncertain times • India is a very complex and consensus driven society • Would frustration about – China’s example – Loss of esteem in Asia – New generation with new views lead to further liberalisation of economic, regulatory and social controls? • How would the balance of power between a federal style of government with localism, and a more centralised system, play out? www.samiconsulting.co.uk 13
  14. 14. Scenarios for India Robust decisions in uncertain times Federal style of governance Retreat to the Woods The Elephant Lumbers along Liberalisation is reversed Liberalisation accelerates 2006 The Elephant Breaks its Chains Centralised system of governance
  15. 15. What has happened in India? Robust decisions in uncertain times • India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world as a result of liberalization of the last decades, covering manufacturing, agriculture and financial services. • The balance of power between the central government and the states has shifted slightly towards central government as India moves to play a bigger part on the world stage viz-a-viz the UN, Pakistan, etc. For comparison purposes, the central government of India has more power than the US Federal Government. www.samiconsulting.co.uk 15

  17. 17. The big questions for China Robust decisions in uncertain times • How long can China’s rapid economic growth persist? – Can China cope with the complexity it is creating? – What are the adaptation mechanisms? • How will China interact with the rest of the world? – Will she be seen as a source of economic wealth and growth? – And/or a threat on the world stage, a source of instability? www.samiconsulting.co.uk 17

  19. 19. What has happened in China Robust decisions in uncertain times • China’s economic growth has continued – No longer as connected to US trade after 2008: – focus on growing internal consumer markets – 7.7% growth annualised in last quarter • China has a foreign policy to protect its interests – investments in raw materials in Africa, Latin America, SE Asia, ex-USSR countries ,--– Seen as a source of cyber-crime – aggressive in South China Sea – Supports North Korea (shared road bridge) www.samiconsulting.co.uk 19

  21. 21. What can we learn from these? Robust decisions in uncertain times • Scenarios need to build on history but not be constrained by the past – Experts can find it difficult to recognise signs of change • Thinking about the trajectory – how the organisation might get from A to B is important for identifying early indicators that might show which scenario was emerging – Elephant Breaks its Chains – early indicator: Indian companies off-shoring to lower wage economies. – Lion leads the Dance – early indicator: gradual liberalisation of the renminbi $ exchange rate • The scenarios allowed for discussion of previously less explored future directions for China and India. www.samiconsulting.co.uk 21
