What is Scenario Planning?

Scenario Planning is a one of the most powerful methodologies to help organisations chart a course through times of uncertainty. From its origins as a military planning tool through to public policy development and strategies for multinationals, Scenario Planning is now a tool that can be used by companies of any size.

Scenarios are alternative, equally plausible views of the future. each Scenario contains a large number of variables from the political, economic, technology, societal, environmental and legislative domains.

Scenario Planning uses scenarios to test for robustness of investment and business plans, create a new strategy, create new products or manage strategic risk amongst others.
