Our scenario planning process (QUEST™) involves several logical and methodical steps, which are outlined in our book, Futurevision. Briefly they are as follows:
Development of the framing question.
Identification of major trends and influencers of change. How do they impact on us? What can we learn about the future?
This is what might happen. How will we respond? Early warning indicators.
Consideration of strategic options. Responses and interventions to seize new opportunities and mitigate against emerging risks.
