Oxford Scenarios Programme

Oxford Scenarios Programme


The programme combines theoretical and practical sessions that develop your skills and understanding in reframing and re-perceiving strategic decisions. Guidance is provided by our world leading faculty and facilitators. 

Live client case studies

Throughout the week you will work as part of a group to develop scenarios for a real world client who has a live strategic issue that they require help with. This enables you to implement your learning, develop your technique and get real time client feedback in a real business context. 

Questions you will address include: 

  • What can we influence in the context of our organisation and what will most influence us/our success in the future?
  • What is the relationship between strategic planning and scenarios?
  • How do I design a fit-for-purpose scenario intervention?
  • How do scenarios and forecasting relate to each other?
  • Who does what in scenario practice?

Scenario planning forces us to take a step back and not assume that the future is going to look like today but with smaller, faster technology.
