As a world leading research centre in energy technology, this organisation conducts research in a variety of fields and supplies services and support to the energy industry as well as to national governments and international organisations. The research centre faced challenges to navigate the uncertainties and complexities associated with energy research today.
Prospex designed and delivered an integrated approach for strategic foresight in a medium to long term perspective (2030). Key stakeholders and experts, both internally and externally, were involved and interviews helped to create a mapping of the current strategic situation, mind-set and perspective. Over the course of a series of workshops, scenarios were developed to make the future challenges for the research centre explicit. These scenarios were then used as a basis with which to develop a dynamic and integrated strategic planning for the organisation.
