Virtual Rapid Scenario Planning Workshop

Virtual Rapid Scenario Generation & Ranking 


The World Moves Quickly. So Should Your Scenario Planning Process.


Traditional scenario planning is slow, cumbersome, and too often focuses on one “ideal” scenario. In contrast, rapid scenario planning is efficient, versatile, and fast-moving, all of which are critical in times of great uncertainty.  This virtual workshop will give you the tools and best practices to:

  • Quickly generate alternative scenarios that describe the near future
  • Determine what strategies will work in those scenarios
  • Map out implementation plans for the strategic actions
  • Develop plans to focus your intelligence efforts

You will walk away ready to enable your organization to quickly prioritize a “best strategy” and the actions needed to implement the strategy from multiple scenarios. The result is a robust strategy and agile implementation plan that will help your organization thrive in the face of disruption.
