I enjoyed this introduction to scenario planning. Even though examples from current events and publications seem dated, the concepts and advice are useful today.

The book has motivated me to try scenario planning in my own life and work.

A venerable classic about the use of scenarios that deserves to be rediscovered by strategic planners. The writing is clear and easy to follow.

See also Michael Raynor's "The Strategy Paradox", which is a more recent (2007) take on using scenarios to anticipate and prepare for possible events in the face of uncertainty. More academic and long-winded than Schwartz.
