Given law firms' growing interest in scenario planning, I have posted on my Web site the four detailed possible futures we designed for use during the workshop.
Even if you aren’t ready to do full-on scenario planning, do yourself a favor and read these four possible futures in which your law firm might soon be operating. Some are outrageous, some are grim. Each might (or might not) come to pass.
- What actions and positions should your firm take today to succeed in each of these possible futures?
- Which actions / positions, taken now, would predicate your firm’s success in the majority of these scenarios?
- What early warnings would signal when / if each of these possible future were coming true?
- What other actions / positions should you take ASAP when it looks like one of these scenarios is coming true?
