Scenario Planning


Transform your thinking

Scenario planning is a radically different way to plan combining imagination with robust analysis. During the programme you will learn how to create alternative, plausible views of the future each synthesizing a number of variables to explore potential challenges and opportunities.

This day will offer you some radical and provocative insights into how to plan in a non-linear way… be prepared for some challenging thinking.

Yes, and also face to face (as soon as it is safe to do so). It's equally suitable for both options. For more information on the differences between online and face to face training, as well as our social distancing guidelines, visit our Learning and Development page.
If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options.

These include:
  • your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in full days, half-day sessions or bitesize sessions over separate days.
  • tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
  • self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online or call 020 7978 1516 to speak to one of our experienced consultants.
