Final Assignment TIMS7328 Extra Information

Key Questions:
1. An introduction to scenario planning including a description of the critical elements in
constructing successful scenarios.
Notes: I have had several people questioning what are these critical elements I am speaking
about. For clarity I am not asking you to repeat the steps we went through in class. You will
read in the literature that constructing meaningful scenarios is hard and there are factors
that cause issues eg lack of imagination. The question is asking which elements/processes
support the construction of successful scenarios.
2. An evaluation of the scenario you completed as a team for your assessment against
these critical elements.
Notes: I think this is fairly self explanatory. You need to evaluate and explain how your team
built scenario performed against your critical elements from Question 1.
3. An evaluation of the utility of scenario planning to prepare a company for a climate
changed future.
Notes: I think this is fairly self explanatory. You need to explain why conducting scenario
planning is useful for companies as they face a climate changed future.
