Participants learn by applying the techniques and tools of scenario planning to real-life strategic questions.
GBN offers onsite, customized Developing and Using Scenarios courses for 10 or more participants from an organization. We also run an open enrollment training course for individuals several times a year.
GBN's three-day, advanced training course is for strategists and managers who are already familiar with scenarios and want to build their organization's internal scenario planning capacity. The course covers initiating and managing scenario projects, using scenarios to generate strategic options, and testing and refining strategies through a scenaric lens.Scenarios to Strategy is only available as an onsite program for 10 or more participants; no public course is offered.
