TOPIC
Integrate the elements of the course by demonstrating the ability to understand strategic foresight and its application to business strategy, to analyse and evaluate future strategic directions at an organisation level
MORE INTRUCTIONS TO THE TOPIC
Getting ready: 1. Select an organisation. This may be an organisation that you know, are familiar with or are interested in; it could be the organisation that you currently or previously worked for. Anonymise if you feel it is necessary. 2. Select one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that has or is likely to have a significant impact on the strategy of the organisation now or in the future. 3. Select a framework from the course material from either Business futures or Technology Futures sessions taught by Dr Jill Bogie and Prof Manoj Chiba. Explain and describe: 2 steps 1. Explain the relevance of the 3 choices you have made above. 2. Describe the selected framework with reference to literature. The framework is used to structure the evidence and the analysis. Use it systematically. Analysis: 3 steps 3. Source publicly available information from at least 3 different sources* to populate and build the framework. This is your evidence so provide adequate and relevant details of each dimension of the framework and do not limit your answer to a diagram or graphic. Make sure you include all evidence you need for the analysis in step 4. 4. Analyse the evidence by (a) comparing it systematically to each of the dimensions of the framework then (b) use the comparisons to interpret/make sense of the analysis by asking: What does this mean? 5. Conclude by providing some high-level recommended actions for the organisation, derived from the analysis (i.e. do not add additional evidence in the conclusion). Please include all 5 steps in your answer as there are marks for each section. Please check the rubric on Aspire. * This is to strengthen your analysis by triangulating the data/evidence (whether quantitative or qualitative or both) on which it is based. Written submission: Prepare a written report on the above analysis. Maximum 10 pages, including references and annexures, excluding title page. Arial 11, margins 25mm left and right, 1,5 spacing, justified left and right. Please use APA 7th ed. referencing.

Subject Overview Strategic Foresight: GIF 851
This module introduces students to strategic foresight and demonstrates the understanding and application of strategic foresight as a useful method to use in complex and uncertain environments to develop robust business strategies. Students will be provided with a diverse range of examples and case studies to illustrate the practicality and relevance of strategic foresight as an essential way of thinking that frames corporate strategy, decision making and strategy execution.
Strategic foresight is a process of anticipating alternative possible, plausible and preferred futures. It is a multidimensional learning process that considers multiple interconnected domains, from global to local, from regional to organisational, from country to community. Strategic foresight is about long-term, futures thinking. It recognises the complex dynamics of business and how the context of business and current operating environments can be used to shape desirable futures.
Students will be introduced to theories, concepts, and frameworks to recognise, assess and propose actions to address intractable organisational problems; systemic challenges and problems faced by organisations; and complex, large-scale challenges.
The course will provide opportunities for students to apply frameworks to:
• understand how multiple futures inform the assumptions for current and future organisational strategies;
• consider alternative ways of understanding business futures to understand the interconnectedness of business, social and environmental issues;
• use systemic approaches and complexity thinking to formulate responses and take meaningful action;
• understand technology futures and how technology can be used to address systemic issues;
• apply appropriate tools and frameworks to identify technological opportunities for business model innovation.
At the end of this course, students should have working knowledge of strategic foresight concepts and practices, including business futures and technology futures, with a view to developing their scholarship in the field.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
