How do scenarios work?

Scenarios enable the creation of different futures with often strongly different emphases.  Often there will be extreme scenarios that serve to highlight the contrasting possibilities facing an organisation.  Nothing is right and nothing is wrong.  Each Scenario is a real possibility which should not be dismissed lightly.

Scenarios enable us to think about things we do not think about.  In other words they bring back into focus ideas or possibilities which at first glance might be rejected. 

Planning in times of change requires the ability to think differently; to think of what might be; not what we resign ourselves to.  Scenarios offer to chance to liberate ourselves from the drudgery of linear thinking.
