Title: Creating Scenarios for Uncertain Futures

Category: Product Strategy

Format: Presentation

Description:
Scenarios deal with mitigating risk – the risk that you’re addressing the wrong market or have incorrectly defined your requirements for a changing market.  This is especially relevant for long lead-time products in rapidly changing industries, generational hand-offs, and economic disturbances.  For agile software developers this may not be so much of a benefit, but for people who are building services they want to last 10+ years or are actually making physical stuff it’s an issue.
