Scenario Planning is an intentional and organized method for considering and incorporating “what if’s” into the planning framework. Scenario planning has been used in an array of settings and is becoming increasingly common for strategic planning purposes in higher education (Sayers, 2010). As such, the RP Group and the IEPI Integrated Planning team streamlined information from the literature review to develop a tool that helps facilitate scenario planning at local institutions. This document was intended to provide simple, step-by-step instructions and illustrations to help colleges understand how scenario planning works and what it is used for, as well as encourage colleges to adopt these steps to bolster their plans.
