Scenario Planning

“How do I plan in a world of sudden unknowns?”

A strategic plan is a way to get from A to B.

But, the problem we’re often faced with is — what is point B? What does it look like? Previously, scenario planning was often a long and expensive process, usually undertaken by governments, NGOs, and think tanks. That doesn’t work for most businesses. The answer is agile.

In a volatile, uncertain world, scenario planning, now more than ever, is mission-critical. But, how? It can be expensive and take more time and resources than you have. fassforward’s agile approach to creating scenarios can be done as quickly as 4-6 weeks.

Scenario Planning is here to help you figure out what B looks like and how to re-imagine a future with political, economic, social, and technological trends making permanent shifts to your strategy.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Setup and orientation

Scenario planning is a misnomer. It’s a plan to build a scenario and a foundation for a strategic plan. Learn about Scenario Planning and the agile methodology.

Theme development

The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed. Brainstorm key trends and factors most likely to affect your business.

​Impact and plausibility

Every crisis accelerates some slow trends and disrupts others. Develop scenario themes and assess plausibility.

Scenario narrative(s)

Data, we don’t believe. Tell me a story instead. Use storytelling to turn the themes into a cohesive scenario narrative.

Scenario presentation

The biggest risk may be doing nothing. Present final scenarios —  the risks associated and the impact on the current strategy.
