  • How to use Scenario planning to develop policy and strategy
  • The different ways Scenario planning can be used in any organisation


The course is ideal for anyone wanting to "test drive" Scenario planning before implementing it in their organisation; those involved in a Scenario project who need development in the field; and those who would like to introduce this type of lateral thinking to their organisation's leadership programmes.
