Navigating Uncertain Futures with Scenario Planning

Wednesday, October 7, 2020 at 2:00 PM ET

Emerging technologies, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic are just a few of the uncertainties faced by cities and nonprofit organizations as they prepare for the future. Scenario planning is a proven methodology for analyzing and preparing for uncertain futures, that has been used by companies, cities, and organizations. Drawing on my recent book, Scenario Planning for Cities and Regions: Managing and Envisioning Uncertain Futures, this webinar will feature an overview of scenario planning concepts and tools, discuss a framework for implementing scenario planning for nonprofit organization strategic planning, and provide examples of how urban planners use scenarios.

Learning Objectives:

  • Arts organization leaders will be able to define scenario planning, and explain how it differs from other frameworks such as visioning and strategic planning, in order to decide with others whether it is appropriate for their organization.
  • Arts organization leaders will gain familiarity with practical scenario planning frameworks and resources, and understand their potential value.
