What is the Anticipatory Organization Learning System?

Request More Information

The Anticipatory Organization® Learning System is a results-driven process for executives and their teams to develop the skills to accurately foresee and take critical actions before disruption strikes.. Developing the competency of Anticipation is a powerful enhancement for organizations who have adopted other process improvement methods like Agile, Lean, Six Sigma and others. The program focuses on four key areas of development:

Trend Analysis

Understanding directional changes in your industry will enable you to better identify market certainties. Are you faced with cyclical change (such as seasonal,  economic or sales cycles)? Or linear & exponential change (such as the shift to mobility, virtualization, and advanced cloud services)? Knowing the difference can give you a powerful window to the future.

As you learn to separate the HARD TRENDS that will happen from the SOFT TRENDS that might happen, you will learn to foresee and profit from change and disruption.

Customer Needs

Suppose instead of trying to meet your customers’ expectations, you could predict their future needs.

To create the best products and provide the best services, a company must correctly gauge what trends, environments, and situations will address their customers’ current and future unmet needs.

Discover how to rise above the competition by using Hard Trends to predict what your customers will need before they ask for it—and provide them with a solution at just the right time.

Sales Obstacles

Tie your solution into the HARD TRENDS that will shape your customers’ future. Certainty brings a high level of confidence. Use that confidence as a powerful closing tool. Hurdle over sales obstacles by foreseeing and solving problems before your customers can identify them.

New Opportunities

The most exciting part of active anticipation is being able to identify and capitalize on new business opportunities. Learn how to jump ahead with much lower risk to gain  and maintain a healthy advantage over your competitors.
