Scenarios: Planning And How To Build Them

Scenarios - strategy - what we experience

A good set of “scenarios” are plausible stories, relevant to the question at hand, divergent from one another, and challenging our assumptions about how the future will play out.  When applied to strategic thinking, as it has been by successful organizations for the last 20 years, a set of scenarios is a tool for ordering one’s perceptions about alternative future environments in which today’s decisions might play out.  These two articles by Lawrence Wilkinson of Heminge & Condell, form the background material for the 2013 Super-Regional Meeting Symposium, The Futures of Public Media: Scenario Planning and How To Build Scenarios.
