Transformations, and the journey of change, are dependent on predictions and forecasts on multiple fronts. How will the market evolve? What are the benefits? When will it deliver? And many other considerations. But all of these are subject to an element of chance. In the uncertain world that we live in, it’s crucial to start considering how likely it is that the various forecasts in your transformation come to pass. Or not. Join Oliver Banks and discover how you can consider chance and probability in your transformation programme.

Listen to this podcast episode to discover:

  • Areas of your transformation that are subject to chance.
  • How you can start considering likelihood.
  • And what you can do to improve the probabilities of your predictions.
