Scenario Thinking

Years ago the sheel scenario thinking approach spawned many specific ways of going into complex problem solving. And this migrated into the business theory area. First Back Casting by Philip V, and then the method_U by Generon/ Kahane. These methods have now got codified and have case studies explaining the way. The entry into this territory has become possible. Scenario Planning Resources (link above) is a very good resource into this area.
