About the course

Are you considering all the plausible futures for your strategy?

In an uncertain world scenario planning equips you with the skills and tools to deal effectively with potential opportunities, threats and challenges.

On this programme, you will learn how to develop robust strategies in the face of numerous plausible futures.

You will cover a broad range of themes, including:

  • What can we influence in the context of our organisation and what will most influence success in the future?
  • What is the relationship between strategic planning and scenarios?
  • How do I design a fit-for-purpose scenario intervention?
  • How do scenarios and forecasting relate to each other?
  • Who does what in scenario practice?

Unique to the programme is the live client case study. You will work on a strategic issue as part of a group for a real world client. Through this work you gain hands-on experience and put your theoretical learning into practice, receiving real-time feedback.
