“It’s a dangerous world out there and we’re not talking about war and terrorism. CEOs may not even be prepared from basic business developments such as competitors that appear from nowhere… That’s the conclusion Fuld & Co. has reached on the basis of a year-long survey of 140 corporate strategies from Global 2000 companies…” – Chief Executive Magazine, June 2003
Early warning is more than just looking for competitive tsunamis – nearly everyone can see major industry shifts coming. That is not the problem. Most companies fail to act expediently. That is where both the problem and the challenge lie for management. Fuld & Company can both help your company anticipate and act on future events before you miss the opportunity or become victim to the threat.
Our approach is unique and effective. We want to make you and your company intelligence independent. Our clients develop an external focus on the market and the competition.
Companies that employ an early warning process have a powerful tool that allows them to:
- Identify competitive threats or opportunities, as they emerge – not after the fact
- Create strategic transparency throughout management ranks
- Develop management feedback loop to keep management informed of signals that have become hot
- Know your strategic options before a threat or an opportunity arises
