How will climate change, e-commerce growth, federal and local policy, or food safety protocols impact your business or the world your business exists in?

Are you at a pivotal point in deciding if you should manufacture in-house or search for a co-packer?

Scenario Planning helps your business plan for multiple possible futures and identify what it will take to be successful in each of them.

This is Right for You if…

  • Your business is pivoting to address new or altered markets
  • Your business is considering a significant transition
  • Your business is confronting operational decisions that require investment
  • Your business needs to address current or potential supply chain disruptions

  • 4 days of content delivery and work time,
  • 2 hours of 1-on-1 coaching,
  • Scenario building template,
  • 3-4 scenario narratives with supporting strategies,
  • Business presentations with scenario feedback from coaches and remarkable people (a.k.a. industry experts).
