See also Peter Schwartz's "The Art of the Long View", which is the classic book on the use of scenarios in strategic planning. Raynor's book is an updated version with more recent business examples, but it is less accessible than Schwartz due to its more academic approach. Both books are worth a read by strategic planners, executives, and anyone with responsibility for an organization, even non-profits.
