What Is a Scenario Plan?

A scenario plan is a strategic planning tool used by organizations to visualize possible future events and conditions that could affect them, and to take precautionary measures to mitigate these risks.

How to Conduct Scenario Planning?

  • Collaborate with the team and brainstorm. Clarify the purpose of the session and define the focal issue. Use Creately’s brainstorming templates to capture the ideas and visualize easily.
  • Identify obvious factors like resources and customer demand and less obvious factors such as competitors and products.
  • Analyze external issues that may affect the business decision you want to make. These may include political, economical, social and technological factors. Our PEST analysis templates are an ideal tool for this step.
  • Based on their importance and uncertainty, rank the key factors and external forces that may affect the decision. Creately’s Scenario Matrix templates can be used to identify the factor/s that is most important to the focal issue.
  • Analyze each scenario and determine its impact. Based on the scenarios you have identified, reconsider your strategy and set goals and clarify your mission.
  • If needed, invite your colleagues to the same workspace and work in real-time - as if you’re working from the same room. Use Creately’s inbuilt video conferencing to speak to your colleagues while working on the analysis.
  • Export your diagram in JPEG, SVG, PNG or PDF formats or share with colleagues for real-time feedback collection.
  • Present your analysis to key stakeholders with Creately’s advanced presentation capabilities. Share an edit/review diagram link with others so anyone can easily access it to monitor the progress.
