Futurist Leadership Assignment
Most strategic planning processes include conducting a SWOT analysis to assess the organization's external and internal environments to identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to the organization in the short term (1-5 years). On the other hand, scenario planning allows leaders to imagine possible future events in the long-term (20-30 years). Scenario planning provides leaders and organizations an opportunity to envision a strategic goal that they are willing to work to achieve over a long time.
For this Assignment, review the scenarios presented in Futurevision and Global Trends 2040 as well as the other Learning Resources for this week. (attached)
