K7. The many roles of scenario modelling to achieve innovation and impact

Using scenarios can be a powerful way of fostering innovation and achieving impact through modelling. Scenarios provide a means to engage with industry and the community regarding uncertain futures and implications of alternative courses of action or assumptions about a system. Scenarios can however be used for many different purposes, with different audiences, in different contexts, and hence making use of different tools and methods.
