About this course

When developing a strategy or making investment decisions, there will be many uncertainties that need assessment. These can range from cost and timing issues to broader questions at the macro level, for example political, regulatory or social developments. 

A way to get to grips with the latter category is by using ‘scenario analysis’, sometimes called ‘scenario thinking’ or ‘scenario planning’. A scenario in this context is an alternative future: a coherent narrative of a set of developments, trends and events that could unfold within some defined business environment.

    Focused scenario analysis of the business environment, an e-learning course 

    This course aims to develop skills in the application of the scenario approach in situations where contextual uncertainties in the business environment cannot be (credibly) quantified. A scenario can range from a simple script associated with some sensitivities to involved stories around key uncertainties in the geopolitical, regulatory and macroeconomic arena. The objective is to understand how these uncertainties in the end may affect financial and other decision metrics.

    • Target audience: Project economists, decision analysts, financial analysts, project staff, risk managers, strategy consultants
    • Duration: 10-15 hours (including all assignments).
