6 Ways to
Mitigate Uncertainty in Strategic Planning
succeed at strategic planning, business owners must look to
actively mitigate the many uncertainties under which every
company operates. Here are six ways to do that:
Be curious. Identify the demographic, technological,
cultural and other changes occurring outside your company and
Assess how those changes might impact your organization and
industry. For example, trends toward a more ethnically
diverse and older population have been well documented. How
will they affect your business?
Gain insight on how to succeed in today’s world. Talk
with employees at all levels and from across departments.
Network with peers at companies within and outside your
Figure out what you know. Soak up as much information as
you can through industry journals, trade association
gatherings and social media.
Challenge your assumptions. As markets, technology and
industries advance, determine whether your current plans are
still relevant. If they aren’t, make competitive adjustments.
Focus on flexibility, agility and resilience. Continually
ask “what if” questions and plan for a range of scenarios. For
instance, what if your supply chain breaks down?
Strategic planning should be approached prudently and
decisively — not rashly or hesitantly. We can help chart your
company’s course toward a brighter, more profitable future.
