Scenarios are stories created in our imagination of what the future could be. Scenarios recognise that we do not have one future but many. Scenarios allow us to begin the process of bringing in new ideas into our thinking and planning.
Typically Scenarios give us breathing space to be able think more broadly about the impact of the environmental changes around us before acting.
Scenarios enable an organisation to consult widely and to bring in many views and insights which might otherwise have been considered impractical.
