Scenario planning

Uncertainty ahead

COVID-19 is hitting us hard and has changed the world around us. We don’t yet know the impact it will have or what our new reality will be. Certainly not for the coming months or years. Needless to say, a lot of uncertainty lies ahead. But… that doesn’t mean we should design for the future. In fact, we must. This is what scenario planning is for.


Scenario planning

Scenario planning is about designing multiple possible future scenario’s (for your company) in which we extrapolate current relevant context drivers, assess their impact on the current business model and identify threats and opportunities to act on. Normally, scenario planning has a time horizon of 5 to 10 or even 20 years. However, in times of great uncertainty, scenario planning can help you to create your game plan for today and the coming year.
