Title variants
Languages of publication
In conditions of turbulent global surroundings, business administration is becoming the managerial art of dealing with uncertainty. Elasticity, which also concerns the aspect of the organizational strategy, is the crucial factor of success of contemporary enterprises. Ensuring the strategic elasticity of the enterprise requires redefining the traditional conception of strategic managing. In the new conception, the importance of planning in many variants and emerging strategy are being stressed. The scenario planning is the method which serves the improvement of strategic elasticity of the enterprise and it was positively verified in practice. Work on scenarios requires leading strategic conversations on different levels of the organizational hierarchy in different functional cells. It helps to break barriers in communication and it directs the enterprise to organizational self-teaching. Organizational considerations of possible variants of the future enable earlier preparation of the organizational system for the change.
