Strategic Scenario Design

Embrace uncertainty, prepare for change and forge ahead in the uncharted territories of tomorrow.

What We Do

MI’s strategic scenario design is a data-integrated service that explores alternate trajectories to distill clear pathways for action.

Our approach scrutinises perceived trends and their uncertainties against empirical data, weeding out biases, unearthing blind spots and fostering stakeholder consensus.

Horizon Scanning

Discovering Early Signs of Change

Staying ahead of the curve requires an understanding of what is happening today but also how it could change in the future. Trends, driving forces and signals illuminate potential directions forward and broaden our views on threats that may have been unanticipated.

MI keeps a pulse on emerging city-level issues and makes sense of them with our clients by applying a systemic lens. The findings also form the framework for subsequent dialogue

Scenario Modelling​

Simulating Potential Impacts and Vulnerabilities​​

Scenarios do not predict the future but rather minimise surprise. An exploration of alternative futures around multiple unknowns​ helps to bridge the gap between today and a preferred future.

MI adjusts underlying assumptions to assess the materiality of risks, evaluate impacts and identify potential responses. Narratives are built with relevant stakeholders to reflect local conditions and aspirations.

Visioning​

Capturing Values and Ideas

An overarching vision of a preferred future helps to anchor projects and can be a convergence point when there are multiple components.

MI takes an iterative approach in developing visions and articulating shared goals that are future-proof. By checking them against perception, we can have a more informed grasp on the gap between the probable and preferred.

Forecasting and Backcasting

Deriving Value and Putting into Action

Forecasting extrapolates into the future to estimate impact and adjust expectations while backcasting allows for an implementable pathway towards desired outcomes.​

MI supports the strategic thinking with a systems view that connects multiple moving parts and stakeholders. We also ensure the trackability and flexibility to make adjustments over time.
