Strategic Foresight and scenario planning methods

Even if there is no scientific way to predict the future, there are rigourous and systematic methods to understand and assess the plausibility of different courses of events. Scenario planning such as the Shell method is a well-known approach to envision different plausible futures. At Hotelschool The Hague, we also follow the Framework Foresight method (‘Exploring futures the Houston way’) in which common assumptions about the future are challenges to propose alternative directions for future developments.

Strategic foresight is an integral part of our research programme, but it is also offered as a subject in the Master Leading Hotel Transformation.
