Scenario Planning serves as a guide to taking a long-term look at your business, your industry, and the world, posing thoughtful questions about the possible consequences of some current (and possible future) trends. This book will help you:

Outline (and help you prepare for) any trends that could play out in the future that could change the political, social, and economic landscapes and significantly impact your businessExplore the impact of technological advances and the emergence of new competitors to your businessExamine challenges that are only dimly recognizable as potential problems today
