    Colleagues, with apologies for cross-postings,

    I'm excited to invite you to submit a manuscript to our Special Issue of California Management Review focusing on Scenario Planning for Strategic Decision-Making, Learning, and Managing Uncertainty.

    The strategic landscape for businesses and other organizations has grown increasingly turbulent, uncertain, unpredictable and ambiguous. Events such as the 2008 financial crisis, COVID-19 pandemic, Ukraine invasion, war in Gaza, catastrophic natural disasters, and other pivotal events have added unprecedented disruption and forced most businesses to adapt strategically.

    Scenario planning is a commonly used methodology for identifying a broad array of risks and opportunities by surfacing and challenging decision makers' deep assumptions.

    For decades scenario planning has been implemented at various units of analysis ranging from business units, organizations and industries, to cities, nations, technologies, supply chains, and global challenges like climate change and COVID-19. This special issue of California Management Review is focused on research about contemporary scenario planning in businesses and other organizations with a future focus.

    The submission deadline is 31 October 2024, and you can find out more by downloading the full call, here: https://cmr.berkeley.edu/assets/documents/paper-calls/cmr_special_issue_scenario_planning.pdf
