Proactive Worldwide COO to Lead Strategic Planning and War Gaming Workshop at the SCIP 2015 International Conference & Exhibition

CHICAGO--()--Proactive Worldwide’s COO, John Swanson, will lead a scenario planning and business war gaming training course at the 30th Anniversary SCIP (Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals) International Conference & Exhibition in Atlanta, GA on Monday, May 11, 2015. Erik Glitman, Fletcher CSI CEO, will co-lead the workshop with Mr. Swanson. The course is titled, “Using Scenario Planning and War Gaming to Drive Value in Intelligence.”

“Using Scenario Planning and War Gaming to Drive Value in Intelligence.”

Effective CI teams deliver intelligence that clearly connects market and competitive insights to the decisions executives need to make. Strategies vary depending on the market and competitive scenarios. The ability to clearly define the insights and variables that could impact return on investment for the firm’s opportunities, threats and planned investments is crucial. Business War Games and Scenario Planning events enable these decisions by linking intelligence findings and leadership’s needs in the context of each scenario. Business war games align and enable the firm’s cross-functional leadership to effectively execute the planned strategies. Knowing how and when to lead these events is, therefore, one of the most important factors for determining success in an intelligence role. The full day interactive session will engross the participants in the tools, methods, analyses, and presentation skills needed to be proficient.

Nan Bulger, SCIP Executive Director stated, “War Games and Scenario Planning have become a critical skill that drives value for the business. They are an important element in a company’s strategic planning process and the intelligence teams that effectively implement them make a significant impact on their firm’s competitive positions. SCIP welcomes the opportunity to have John and Erik develop our members’ skills in this key area.”
