Course description

Scenario-based Strategic Thinking – The Workshop

Scenario-based Strategic Thinking: Deepening Wisdom, Reducing Risk

Scenario-based strategic thinking is a highly creative approach which produces a more comprehensive, conservative, risk-spreading strategy capable of guiding business innovation forward in uncertain times. As a methodology of strategic management, it enables you to monitor key indicators in the world so as to determine which scenario is emerging real-time, for which your organization already has the strategy elements to more fully and rapidly respond.

Scenario-based strategic planning is contrasted with “forecast-based planning,” which formulates a business strategy for a single scenario of assumptions – and then “bets” that the forecast and assumptions are correct. Most often, forecast-based planning is a numbers-driven exercise that focuses on traditional business indicators.

By contrast, scenario-based strategic planning takes a more holistic view of what indicators are important, and emphasizes their inter-relationships. This course is a fundamental component of executive education for successfully leading innovation across the entire organization.

Core Concepts:

  • Scenario-based strategic planning is a highly creative and engaging approach which produces a comprehensive, conservative, risk-spreading strategy that is capable of guiding the organization forward in uncertain and complex times
  • Scenario-based strategic planning takes a more holistic view of what indicators are important, and emphasizes their inter-relationships
  • There are 10 elements for an innovative business model, each supports the art and discipline of innovation


  • Include a wide range of stakeholders when developing an organizational strategy that positions you across the complexity and uncertainty of these times
  • Increase engagement, stimulate innovative thinking, and make wise, informed decisions about the future
  • Develop innovative business models using a 10 element model
  • Gain consensus about the urgencies and priorities to drive your organization’s future
