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.

“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.
