How Scenario Planning Influences Strategic Decisions

Book Description

Anecdotal evidence suggests that considering various scenarios helps strengthen decision making.

They found that though participants’ confidence in their choices never wavered, the strategic choices they made before the exercise often changed dramatically after viewing the scenarios, with a tendency to become more flexible and focused on long-term value.
