Professional Services:

ENTERPRISE SOLUTIONS:


--RESEARCH AND ADVISING: 

Your situation: You know weather has some sort of impact on your business or organization but don't know where and how to start your research effort.  You want your research efforts to be efficient, timely and thorough. 

Our solution: After an initial no-cost phone call, we will work with you to develop a scoping document.  The document will define your project objectives, requirements, benefit and proposed deliverables so that we may provide advisory services that meet your expectations.   


--SCENARIO PLANNING WORKSHOP:   

Your situation: Your organization has a need to understand how changes in the weather or climate may affect business or customer decisions in a time period well beyond any reasonable available forecast to even years in the future.  You also know there are other influences that may factor in decision making including social, technological, environmental, economic and political aspects.  

Our solution: Our main focus is using a process called Scenario Planning that incorporates weather/climate.  Scenario Planning incorporates social, technological, environmental, economic and political aspects into understanding plausible futures.  These futures are not forecasts but they give insight as to what could occur.  With this type of insight people and organizations can determine strategies now to optimize the opportunities and challenges down the line. Scenario Planning can help organizations develop better resilient plans, prepare for change and become more innovative.    Scenario Planning is a process that requires some time and interaction, but can be very rewarding. The Scenario Planning Workshop expectations are defined through a scoping statement.  Workshops are on-site and require multiple meetings.  



WORKPLACE LOCATION SOLUTIONS:  


--WEATHER HAZARD PLANNING WORKSHOP:  

Your situation:  You have seen the impact of weather on your business and employee productivity from weather events like snowstorms and thunderstorms.  However, you are not sure if you are prepared enough or if there are other types of weather hazards to be aware of.   

Our solution:  Our Weather Hazard Planning  Workshop includes a review of the weather that can impact your business and your facility itself. We assist your organization in determining the impact from different weather parameters and your weather thresholds.  We also advise on resources you can utilize to minimize impacts or take advantage of opportunities.

--SEASONAL CLIMATOLOGICAL IMPACT WORKSHOP:  

Your situation:  You are a retailer, energy or agricultural company and concerned about longer range weather (1 to 3 months) and its impact on your business or organization.  You know that deterministic forecasts are not available/useful in the longer range but have heard about probabilistic forecasts.  

Our solution:  WeatherStrategy is able to address this with a Seasonal Climatological Impact Workshop.  This workshop focuses on an impacted industry (Agricultural, Energy or Commerce).  Using publicly available seasonal climatological outlooks, we will work with your group to make the outlooks usable for decision making purposes.  The workshop includes understanding temperature and precipitation extremes on your organization for the 1 to 3 month ahead time period, working with the available forecasts and then determining strategies and action plans for your organization.   Probabilistic forecasts like this are useful because decisions using these forecasts are generally being made in the right direction.
