“A strategy is a systematic long term plan of action designed to pursue a beneficial situation or a goal. “
”Development of strategies aims at the assurance of sustainable capability to act in theachievement of objectives in possible futures. “
We are in the early stages of profound changes in the global balance of power. The resulting shifting will have a formative impact on i.e., energy andf inancial markets; military crises cannot be excluded. Targeted interference with global networks such as merchant marine and air traffic, energy supply or telecommunication will affect the economic and public capability to act. Inlight of determined protagonists and growing environmental and technical risks,t hese challenges require new surveillance, prevention and reaction strategies as well as new instruments and tactics. The public sector, but also critical industrial segments such as energy, transport, finance and insurance, food and water supply are affected in equal measure.
The CESS Approach
CESS believes that a future oriented scenario analysis and the consequent development of scenarios is a prerequisite to secure the future of both public and corporate institutions. CESS hence persues this strategic dimension in applying integral approaches, analysis of scenario alternatives and long-term development perspectives. CESS acts on the assumption that the necessity for strategic orientation will continue to increase.
With its expertise and network of associates and partner organisations, CESS offers a holistic approach to complex matters: from problem analysis, development of concepts and instruments, and solution verification to advice in conceptual, organisational and technical questions.
