Questions about the Design phase.
An exponential growth strategy is not linear growth based on a historic compound annual growth rate. It is a blueprint for identifying disruptive, new business opportunities through which organizations can disrupt the market and devastate incumbents. The impacts start off as a ripple on the horizon, often unnoticed. However, its momentum and impact doubles every year, until it becomes a tsunami that causes mass extinction of existing propositions in short order. Think of DVDs and CDs being replaced by digital downloads. Often organizations miss disruptive propositions because, when they notice it they believe it to be too small to warrant management attention. By the time it does, it is too late. Futureworld starts by looking at the future and identifying new playing fields for clients and specific business opportunities within these playing fields to supercharge shareholder and stakeholder value.
Guardrails are predefined playing fields that an organization has determined sits outside their scope. By way of example, it may be certain geographies, or investments that are not carbon-neutral. Defining the guardrails sharpens the focus on playing fields that provide viable options. We collaboratively define these with our clients up front to ensure alignment throughout the strategy development process.
The ‘business of today’ is a client’s current business to be incrementally grown over time, using a proven business and operating model. The ‘business of tomorrow’ unlocks exponential growth because the strategies we develop are unhindered by a definition of ‘core business’. At Futureworld, we don’t only look at the business of today. We help our clients visualize a future business – the business of tomorrow – based on the signals we see and the opportunities they present.
A strategy breakaway is an important step on an exponential growth journey. High-impact leadership and strategy breakaways choreographed by Futureworld are unique and create enormous momentum for change in leadership teams, raise their ambitions, and deepen their belief in the ‘art of the possible’.
