Strategic Reframing

This book is about how the Oxford Scenario Planning Approach (OSPA) enables individuals and groups to better understand situations and develop new strategies. Chapter 1 outlines seven premises of the OSPA, and its three distinctive features: (1) learner-centric emphasis is key to impact; (2) it helps people to frame, reframe, and reperceive a situation; and (3) an approach to support strategy in contexts that exhibit turbulence, uncertainty, novelty, or ambiguity (TUNA) that balances competitive and collaborative strategic action. Reframing involves open systems thinking—not projections—and developing new, shared insights by contrasting alternative future contexts; reperception entails identifying new courses of action. Reframing and reperception are linked and enabled through immersive learning where actionable decision options are rehearsed. Using six cases, this book demonstrates the potential of learning with futures to create and prepare for new opportunities, rather than waiting to act until one knows more about the future.

Keywords:   designed inquiry process, reframed understanding, reperceived options for action, inquiring systems, research
