Scenarios: The Art of Strategic Conversation

Three types of approaches to planning:
1)rational - figure out options, calculate costs, benefits.
2)evolutionist - strategy emerges, is not decided upon, is only recognized after the fact. - 'emergent'
3)processual - is found through the strategic conversation.
Decision makes evaluate alternatives, the various structurally different possibilities,
not decisions, but conditions, and devise 'scenarios' as the basis of conversation.
The point of making scenarios is to make the organization more flexible, and open to change, and to reacting to a changing environment, to recognize signs of a particular scenario coming into play, and being able to deal with it.
