30 SABMiller Europe: 2020 Vision Our challenge SABMiller Europe commissioned Future Foundation to help achieve an overarching ‘Vision 2020’ for the beer category across Europe. The vision needed to complement existing strategic pillars, while also driving future growth and profitability. It was vital that our approach stretched internal thinking to deliver a compelling but succinct solution that would inspire and mobilise stakeholders. A stated priority for the project was also to achieve a focus behind which key operational functions could be aligned and action plans prioritized.
31 SABMiller Europe: 2020 Vision What we did We designed and delivered a closely facilitated, 3-month process, structured around 3 key workshops (below) which took the business from standing start to 2020 vision with supporting action plan. At each stage, we worked with robust evidence and insight - presented in creative ways - and proprietary techniques to challenge participants (a senior team drawn from across Europe) and stretch their thinking around 2020 context, ‘desirable futures’ in that landscape, the ultimate goal, and how to get there. Key inputs included an extensive, initial knowledge review - across our own insight and third party data; a tranche of expert interviews - across the spectrum of stakeholders; narratives and visualisations of potential 2020 scenarios for the category; and a global trawl for relevant innovation. Initial analysis: Expert interviews, knowledge and trend review Workshop: Establish 2020 trend framework & implications 2020: Develop 2020 narratives, visualisation, gather inspiring global innovation Workshop: Establish core 2020 narratives, explore inspiring trend-led innovation Unifying themes: Establish strongest core themes to build potential ‘beer futures’ Workshop: Refine desired futures, potential category visions and action plans Interim debrief: Develop and present back initial vision Debrief: Present and refine final vision
32 SABMiller Europe: 2020 Vision What we delivered A succinct, compelling 2020 vision was achieved for the business, supported by analysis around implications, and initial action planning. A toolkit was also developed to support roll out to key stakeholders. This included tailored materials - setting out the project journey and rationale - and visualizations. We were subsequently invited to present alongside SABMiller Europe’s heads of the Strategy & Insight teams to launch the vision and an ‘activation’ program to the business’ 50 plus commercial directors from across Europe. “Meabh and the team at Future Foundation have been the ideal partner to help us brew a vision for our category. FF possesses the blend of talents, the professionalism and the enthusiasm necessary to turn a mass of consumer information into a simple but compelling message engaging us for the future.” Yvan Goupil, Europe Head of Insights & Media, SAB Miller
33 BP: The future of mobility Our challenge At a time of significant shifts in its core market, BP turned to Future Foundation for help in futureproofing strategy for its fuels and lubricants business Looking to both medium- and long-term horizons, the business sought to identify the forces and trends with potential for most significant commercial impact and to unpick their implications. A particular priority for BP was to identify potential ‘whitespace’: i.e. opportunities for innovation through new platforms, initiatives or partnerships. A global perspective was essential.
34 BP: The future of mobility What we did We delivered a comprehensive global trend analysis to build models for mobility in 2010 and 2030. A vast global scan complemented analysis of Future Foundation’s proprietary trend and forecast data. Trends were systematically identified and measured. Adapting proprietary techniques for the process, we then mapped each trend against seven ‘mega themes’ and key criteria to provide a hierarchy of priorities for BP. A trajectory was also plotted for each trend - to illustrate its anticipated evolution for each of the regions in scope. Tailored interviews with a broad range of external experts were also pursued to help validate the most accurate possible view of each trend - in its current and future iterations.
35 BP: The future of mobility What we delivered Our analysis provided a comprehensive and insightful roadmap for consumer mobility and its implications for BP - against a short and longer term horizon. A series of compelling interactive outputs was designed by Future Foundation for use by key stakeholders within the business - to put the future landscape for transportation and core issues at the heart of their thinking. Specifically, our analysis was central to a series of innovation workshops and exploratory presentations within BP to further unpick commercial implications and necessary responses.
