Join us for this webcast as our panelists discuss what scenario planning is and how it can be a useful tool for strategic development and capability building. Scenario planning provides an approach and set of tools to expose the broad strategic risks enterprises may not be paying enough attention to,  as well as help in developing specific contingencies to proposed strategy.   Attendees will learn some of the basic principles of scenario planning and the value it can provide in the planning process.

the key questions that will be addressed:

  • What are some of the key elements to consider when developing a scenario planning exercise?
  • Where is scenario planning best applied: at a division, department, or enterprise level?
  • After we’ve been through a scenario planning exercise, then what?
  • What kind of risk indicators and ongoing processes are required to ensure that companies can respond quickly and effectively as scenarios play out differently than expected?
