Transformative Scenario Planning: Working Together to Change the Future

This 2012 book by Adam Kahane of Reos Partners was published by Berrett-Koehler (San Francisco).

People who are trying to solve tough economic, social, and environmental problems often find themselves frustratingly stuck. They can’t solve their problems in their current context, which is too unstable or unfair or unsustainable. They can’t transform this context on their own—it’s too complex to be grasped or shifted by any one person or organization or sector. And the people whose cooperation they need don’t understand or agree with or trust them or each other.

Transformative scenario planning is a powerful new methodology for dealing with these challenges. Its roots are in scenario planning, a long-established tool for developing strategies to adapt to the future—but it aims to change the future. It enables us to transform ourselves and our relationships and thereby the systems of which we are part. At a time when divisions within and among societies are producing so much stuckness and suffering, it offers hope—and a proven approach—for moving forward together.
