The origins and evolution of scenario techniques in long range business planning
A tracing of the origins and growth of scenarios and the subsequent evolution of the various methodologies is traced; a classification of the methodologies into three main schools of techniques is given and the salient features of these schools are compared and contrasted.
Mobility and Human Development
