Why take this course?
The United Kingdom has declared its intention to leave the European Union, the Customs Union and the Single Market. This process is popularly known as Brexit. The implications for the Irish economy are not yet fully understood which has led to considerable uncertainty.
This module is focused on developing scenario plans to help the learner to identify key issues likely to arise for their organisation if the UK follows through on this
promise. Core knowledge relevant to dealing with the event will be included, as will strategies for dealing with the fallout.
Scenario Planning techniques will be applied simulating the effects of Brexit, considering potential actions to be taken in the event of certain outcomes. This will lead to a presentation and strategy document prepared by each learner based on the learner's own organisation.
What will I experience?
The programme has three phases commencing with an overview of Strategy before focusing on scenario planning in particular. Participants will learn the theory and practical applications of Scenario Planning. This will include a day long workshop which will encompass a practical demonstration of some of the techniques involved in Scenario planning that can be applied to any situation but throughout this module will focus on Brexit. The third phase offers a series of seminars that will provide an insight into the business issues associated with Brexit.
