Abstract

This commentary revisits an early book review by the author of Kees van der Heijden’s influential book, ‘Scenarios: the Art of Strategic Conversation’, highlighting the continuing neglect of the role of forecasting in scenario construction. In addition, there still remains considerable ambiguity as to whether scenarios offer more than plausible stories. The review highlights the need to resolve these ambiguities in the scenario research literature through a better understanding of the links between forecasting and scenario construction. The benefit of success would be a greater understanding of long term uncertainty.
