Why use scenario planning?

Scenario planning is a structured process commonly used by key decision-makers, innovation leads, and strategists to identify a limited number of plausible futures.

By considering data trajectories based on key drivers of change influencing their environment, teams can anticipate exposure to changes and evaluate innovation opportunities to act at the right time.

Understand and contextualize drivers of change

Focus on the trends, emerging technologies, competitor activities, legal regulations, etc. that hold the greatest importance for your business. Use the ITONICS Radar to bring all drivers of change into a single view for quick comparison.

Assess and rate drivers of change together with your team or even external experts. Visualize their level of impact, probability, and reach, then identify those most critical and influential to your future. Narrow down to focus on the drivers of change that will give you the most valuable insight into the future.
