Adapt to a new geopolitical era
Navigating geopolitics and global risk is a major challenge in today's world. We help clients understand what really matters and how to make the right decisions.
PRISM is founded by two management consultants with experience in global macro analysis, political risk, and country research.
We have used or provided every type of service, analysis, and data in this space, across most geographies and sectors - we know how to get the right outcomes for clients looking to navigate global challenges.
We bring a diversity of skills to our projects, combining the best of specialist research firms - global coverage, a network of experts, and experience with key analytical tools and methodologies - with management consulting approaches - tailored, collaborative, and a focus on decisions.
We provide strategic services designed to enable global companies to navigate challenges in the external environment.
We have experience across all areas of macro analysis including scenario planning, market prioritization, country risk assessments, horizon scanning, footprint optimization, stakeholder strategies, and economic development. Our network of experts allows us to cover a broad range of geographies, sectors, and topics.
Our approach is underpinned by our belief that what is needed is not “more” information, but the "right" information, translated to support decision making and connected to the right stakeholders.
Economic analysis - COVID-19 vaccines
How can rich countries be encouraged to finance large scale vaccination for low income countries while they struggle economically?
Our economic analysis showed that global vaccine distribution is in the self-interest of high income countries - its impact on imports, tourism, and other economic activity in these countries can be measured in billions of dollars. We developed a sectoral analysis to enable the crafting of targeted political messages to support fundraising for global vaccine distribution. A final white Paper was then developed, ready for publication, todissimminate the findings to media and the broader public.
Growth strategy - China
How can China's Belt and Road Initiative bring export opportunities from our Chinese manufacturing base?
We created a global road map for geographic expansion to high growth markets by assessing the relationships between key countries and Beijing. We identified different levels of opportunity across the Biotech value chain, from drug formulation to distribution. Specific scenarios for severed trade opportunities in the case of political conflict between China and key markets enabled nuanced recommendations in relation to opportunity capture in light of long-term strategic considerations.
Scenario planning - climate
World leaders have made new pledges of carbon neutrality - but can the pace of change accelerate further?
We developed a range of scenarios for how a low carbon future can evolve. Combining the forces of technological advancement, increasing climate related damage, and coming demographic change that will alter the politics, we identified plausible futures where much steeper reductions in carbon emissions enable the world to arrive closer to the 1.5 degree goal sooner than most expect. The deliverable served as a strategic guidepost for the company's climate efforts, enabled specific initiatives to be developed to capture opportunities arising from the transition, and generated a hopeful vision of the future to serve as a call to action for policy makers and client's peer corporations.
Emerging risk tracking - supply chain
How can we systematically track emerging risk in the supply chain?
Post-Brexit regulatory environment, China over-reliance, accelerating climate change regulations are all risks we know are on the horizon but most companies are struggling to accurately plan and adapt. We broke down the most important emerging risks to understand the moving parts, the severity of the impact, and the exposure in different parts of organization and built a risk tracking system that provides tailored information alerts to the right decision makers on a continuous basis.
