Scenario Planning: Scenario Planning sessions are designed to help participants consider and discuss a variety of actions that might take place as a result of changing conditions. Importantly, participants need not land on “final answers” as a result, though that would certainly be a bonus. Rather, it is the deep, peer-to-peer exploration of possibilities given a potential or actual state of affairs that provides the greatest value to participants. These 90-minute sessions are appropriate for situations when there is likely more than one “right” answer/solution. For instance, local and regional dynamics can often impact how an educator preparation professional might respond to changes that impact the industry using an “if-then” approach. Facilitators should allow enough time for participants to plan their strategies and tactics as a result of the information they’re receiving, i.e. it is not enough to tell them the new information – you must also allow them to explore potential or certain changes so they can begin to plot their course.
