How we can help »


Strategic plans often fail because organisations misunderstand how the risks and opportunities ahead will reshape their business model and operating environment. So we start with the big picture.

A BWD materiality assessment (future-proofing strategy) allows your executive team to better understand how changes in technology, society and the environment might disrupt your business, now and in future.

Our materiality assessment process starts with a megatrends analysis. Why? Because the past is littered with once great companies that didn’t understand how their operating environment was changing.

BWD’s approach, by contrast, helps identify ‘grey swans’ – those horizon risks and opportunities that your long-term strategy should be contemplating and reporting against. These are rarely apparent on the balance sheet or even in the risk matrix. Don’t become a Kodak: let us help future-proof your organisation today.

See the big picture.

“If you can look into the seeds of time, and say which grain will grow and which will not, speak then unto me.”
— Shakespeare
