Tema:  Robust Risk-Based Strategy Design

Resumo: Purpose: to exemplify with a business case a formal methodology for solving strategic management problems, by walking the audience through a sequence of steps from problem analysis to implementation using off-the-shelf widely available systems methods.

Contents: Both the reasons for and the solution of persistent problems with strategy making are traceable to the origins of commonly used methods. Bringing in context ideas from seemingly disparate fields helps put together a sound problem-solving methodology with immediate practical use.

 The central tenet is that strategy is conveyed throughout the organization as a model of intended future. Lacking a science-based approach to strategic modeling, executives adapt ideas from selected thinkers, so often by trial and error. The alternative is to draw from formal for model-based strategic thinking as the means to create risk-based strategies that are robust to arbitrary events.
