Ignatov & Company Group - Automotive - ForesightWe provide Foresight services in Automotive since 1998 – with emphasis in Market & Industry, Technology and Problem-Specific Foresight.

ICG uses a wide range of the Foresight techniques – such as expert panels, Delphi method, strategic analysis/planning methods (SWOT, PEST, STEER, EPISTEL, etc.), brainstorming, scenario analysis and planning, causal layered analysis (CLA), morphological analysis and cross-consistency assessment, relevance trees, systems engineering, etc.

Our team has good contacts among the largest local automotive producers, manufacturers of car parts and components, car distributors in the target countries, the local offices of few global automotive producers, etc. We have abilities to make expert interviews in local languages.

To overcome foresight methods' major limitations (such as ignoring of the minor opinions frequently presenting the “creative” approach not shared with the majority of the experts; experts’ “conformism”; organizational challenges at large expert group management, etc.) we actively use such advanced methods as chaos theory, catastrophe theory, tensor analysis, graphs theory, game theory, case based reasoning (CBR), genetic algorithms, etc. in our Foresight projects.

Here is what we can cover as related to the foresight in Automotive markets:

  • Passenger cars
  • LCV
  • Heavy trucks, including heavy haulers, ore carriers and dump trucks
  • Buses and coaches
  • Trailers
  • Motorcycles
  • Automotive parts and components
We do not provide foresight in defense automotive segment – armored combat vehicles, such as infantry mobility vehicles or infantry fighting vehicles
