Intro to Geopolitical Risk Analysis

Geopolitical Risk Analysis with Science4Data and GetRisk.Info

June 26, 2019

Be prepared: The Importance of Geopolitical Risk Analysis

The world is shrinking. Risk is growing. Any organization

  • engaging in trade
  • depending on public opinion
  • subject to consumer sentiment
  • expanding markets

must be aware of the external forces and risks that may impact their operation.

PESTEL Analysis provides an effective framework for measuring the magnitude and risk of external factors relative to an organization as whole or specific areas of interest.

An effective PESTEL Analysis provides an organization with information they need to:

  • make critical decisions
  • mitigate threats to operations
  • take advantage of opportunities presented

Performing PESTEL Analysis: Challenges and Solutions

A thorough PESTEL analysis is a critical tool to the organization, but requires overcoming important obstacles:

  1. Most pertinent PESTEL information is outside of the organization and unstructured
  2. Finding, Filtering, Managing and Extracting Value from that External Data is Complex
  3. Proliferation of Risk and Instability
    • More volatile, higher stakes world
    • Communications Warfare
    • Changing landscape and erosion of globalization
    • Growing risk of malicious misinformation
    • Risks change with a Tweet
  4. Requires challenging, specialized analysis – two common approaches may fall short:
Approach One Approach Two
Internally Source Agency or Consultancy
Devote significant internal staffing, time and resources to researching external factors and compiling analysis. Efforts may include re purposing business analysis staff, syndicated information subscriptions, in depth review and summary across resources. Hire an external firm to perform this analysis. The work is similar to internally staffing the effort however the outside firm may have specialized skill sets or prepackaged reporting to reuse. Engagement may include one time efforts or ongoing maintenance.
Limitations may include:

  • Opportunity costs of key resources
  • Need to build/operate special tools and processes
  • Speed to market/answers
  • Competing priorities
Limitations may include:

  • Hard costs
  • Time bound engagement
  • Speed to market/answers
  • Ongoing monitoring

Democratic Candidate PESTEL Positioning

Science4Data’s Signal Series: Scope of Political Campaigns

June 11, 2019

Overview

The race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination is crowded and at the forefront of many conversations. Can a front runner emerge with cohesive political and popular support? We use Science4Data’s GetRisk.Info platform to quickly identify important insights.

Analysis

Using Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing, GetRisk.Info applies and calculates the PESTEL scope across broad media coverage of the race.

PESTEL Scope for 2020 Democratic Presidential Campaign
PESTEL is a tool used by analysts across industries and provides an excellent framework for understanding the relative magnitude of external forces in the context of a specific event, entity or organization.

Of course we would expect Politics to dominate any dialog related to presidential candidacy. Are Trade, Technology and the Environment underrepresented? Is this scope consistent for all candidates? We easily shift the scope of the assessment from the broad cycle to news coverage on the individual presidential hopefuls (we stuck to CNN’s power ranking top ten).

The Candidates

Joe Biden

Media coverage for the former Vice President “fits” with broader coverage with a lower emphasis on Legal

Bernie Sanders

Articles on the Vermont Senator include more emphasis on Society and the Economy

Kamala Harris

The Senator from California enjoys the most well-rounded coverage of any of the candidates

Pete Buttigieg

PESTEL scope of the South Bend Mayor’s media closely fits the wider pattern

Elizabeth Warren

The Massachusetts Senator is one of two candidates without Politics as the #1 PESTEL topic

Beto O’Rourke

The former Representative joins Harris in over indexing on Environmental topics

Amy Klobuchar

More well-rounded than most, Society dominates the PESTEL of the Minnesota Senator’s media coverage

Cory Booker

News for the New Jersey Senator’s candidacy is decidedly Politic in scope

Kirsten Gillibrand

The New York Senator’s media coverage contains a definitive Social element

Julián Castro

The PESTEL for the former Cabinet member matches closely with broader campaign scope

Takeaways

While the experts at Science4Data want to know what happened to Technology; missing Trade scope across all candidates is the most glaring hole in the media coverage across the entire campaign. Environmental topics are strongly associated with two specific candidates.
