Scenario Planning

April 22, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am EDT



This workshop will give an overview of the scenario planning process, discuss who is involved, and share some tools to help participants create plausible future scenarios and plan strategy to address each potential scenario. We emphasize iterative strategy development involving acting, learning, and adjusting rather than planning for the next three years.

In this workshop, participants will:
  • Participants will understand how to do scenario planning
  • Participants will get helpful templates to guide them through steps in scenario planning
  • Participants will learn how to iterate and adapt their strategy
