SP4Ed Instructions for Session 3: A managers perspective of scenario planning
These instructions are for your Tue 28 and Wed 29 May 2013
Great to see a growing number of interesting SP4Ed perspectives being posted via blogs, microblogs and WENotes. You can keep track of the posts from the different sources by visiting the SP4Ed aggregated feed.
If you've only just joined us, you will find copies of the previous session announcements linked from the course homepage. Also, if you haven't had a chance yet -- please complete the new participant survey
During this session, we will review a number of published scenarios from a manager's perspective. The idea is to select a scenario of your choice and to simulate the decisions you would take in your own context. As a group, we are likely to source scenarios of varying quality -- but that's the point. By looking at the strengths and weaknesses of published scenarios we find on the Internet, we should get a better idea of the requirements for a "good" scenario before attempting to create our own.
We're fortunate to have video signposts from university leaders who have used scenario planning in the real world.
You will find links to the relevant materials and activities for Session 3 on the Workshop schedule page (Click on the down arrow to reveal the outline for Session 3.)
We've added a communication channel for the course by creating a G+ Community for SP4Ed. Participants are most welcome to post interactions via this channel in addition to Twitter, WENotes and your personal blogs. Use what works best for you.
Looking forward to reading the decisions you recommend based on your context and the scenarios you used.
Niki and Wayne.
