BIG IDEA In A Few Words
Effective leaders are always asking "what's happening next?" hoping they will be able to "see around the corner" just far enough to prepare the organization for the future. The art of "looking around the corner" is known as scenario planning. Scenarios help us link the uncertainties we hold about the future with the decisions we make today. Scenario planning is not fundamentally about predicting the future; it is about preparing for several alternate futures so you can take informed action. Scenario planning is an extension of strategic planning that probes the uncertainties of your ministry context for issues and questions that are both very important and very uncertain.
