Really impressed with this book which is easy to understand and the process is very well structured. Some great tips too. I'd recommend this to anyone interested in learning more about running an innovations workshop.

I read this book with some skepticism. Many books introduce scenario planning but are little more than advertisements for consultancy. I teach MBAs and was looking for a book that I could use to teach MBAs with. And, this is the book. The powerpoint slides and workbooks that are available on the Palgrave website for the book can be modified and used in teaching very easily. The step-by-step instructions are jusr right. And the whole package is based on cutting-edge research by the authors - what more can you want? Excellent cutting-edge stuff!

I've read many books on Scenarios - including van der Heijden and Ringland's - but this is the first book, ever, where I think I have learnt how to do a scenario intervention without using an external facilitator. All the detail is here - and more. I especially liked the emphasis on giving the deatail of the intuitive logics method and the ways that this can be supplemented - to think of issues of corporate responsibility and with how to anticipate rare high-impact events. Major insights here for me.

Teach me to buy books based on the reviews of others!

If you have read any other book on scenario planning save your money as this book is a (poor) rehash of all of them. The opening chapter even opens with the same scenarios as used by Kees van der Heijden in his Art of the strategic conversation, then, in my opinion, it goes down hill from their!

It covers how to do scenario interventions in a similar wording from the same book as mentioned above smattered with many other interjections similar to other books added for good measure.

If you are new to scenario planning and looking for an easy introduction to this concept then this 166 page lightweight book is ok (as long as you can borrow it instead of paying the ridiculous price I did) however my suggestion would be do yourself a favour and start with Scenarios: The Art of Strategic Conversation by Kees van der Heijden for an depth introduction and then move onto Scenario Planning in Organizations: How to Create, Use, and Assess Scenarios by Thomas J. Chermack for a thorough how to book

£20, I cannot believe I was that stupid, obviously I had not done my scenario thinking correctly!
