Scenario planning, also called scenario thinking or scenario analysis, is a method that some organizations use to make flexible long-term plans that apply simulations and “what if” scenarios to anticipate market moves and transitions as well as intercept disruptions. During this interactive workshop, we will discuss scenario planning, dynamics of market changes and how to anticipate them. Participants will be broken up into teams and given an actual case for which they will develop an analysis and a variety of scenarios. Pre-reading work will be supplied and required prior to the workshop.

Key Take Aways
  • Frameworks used in scenario planning to assist in anticipating market dynamics and disruptions
  • An understanding (through case studies and teamwork) of how the process of scenario planning works
  • A methodology and tools to develop and execute on a scenario planning process within your organization that supports executive decision making and comprehensive strategic planning efforts

The registration fee for this two day Boot Camp program - $1295.00.
Registration fees includes all materials and one-year membership to SCIP.
