Scenario Planning and Visioning Workshops
Scenario planning and visioning
exercises aim to explore future worlds and
not to make an extrapolation of the future.
They enable people to make an assessment of
the impact and solidness of alternative
strategies in rapidly changing surroundings.
These worlds are imaginative and may never
become reality. But they are inspiring and
imaginable and may deeply challenge people
to see the future in another way.
