Scenario Planning Panel Discussion

Applying Scenario Planning to create robust, adaptive, resilient and transformative talent strategies.

Traditional 5-year plans and one-size-fits-all practices full of numbers and “connect-the-dots” exercises offer little to no help in the face of exponential and accelerating complexity. We have moved far beyond the planning philosophies of the past 50 years, needing new ways to measure, imagine, and move ahead that work within our new world of fast-paced change. Scenarios are an incredibly powerful tool due to their ability to immerse an organization into future probabilities, possibilities, and aspirational outcomes. These stories allow us to assess the validity, robustness and future-readiness of our current strategies, while also uncovering new ideas, products, and models that we may have otherwise missed.
