  Module 8-10: Scenario Planning

Scenario planning is designed to envision and plan for possible future changes that can create opportunities for innovation and transformation. As a seasoned executive, you want to move from constant, crisis-management reactivity to strategically planned proactivity.

These three scenario planning modules will focus on two key failures in strategic thinking: over and under-predicting.

Over-predicting is a result of overconfidence, a belief that you’re on track to handle future shocks. Underpredicting is a narrow restriction of future possibilities.

These modules will discuss these objectives:

  • Introduction to Scenarios
  • Looking Back and Looking Forward in Time
  • Using Scenarios as a Tool in Strategy Development/Implementation
  • Engaging, Communicating and Embedding Scenarios in your Strategic Management Planning
