Covid-19 and the Oxford scenario planning approach

Season 2, Episode 1

In the first episode of the new series, Professor Rafael Ramirez and Dr Trudi Lang explore how scenario planning – creating possible futures that allow you to prepare – can be used to understand uncertainty.

How might issues such as the development of new technologies, an evolution in the role of the state, and changing dynamics between the eastern and western world unfold in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak?


Professor Rafael Ramirez, director of the Oxford Scenarios Programme at Saïd Business School; Academic Director of the Oxford Networked Strategy Lab.
