Making Strategy

For this assignment, you will conduct scenario planning for your organization to provide a framework that addresses the complex and volatile environments in which you will deploy the emerging technology you chose and analyze the underlying uncertainties associated with that decision.
Tasks:
Utilizing the concepts introduced this week, address the following tasks pertaining to your project topic:
Define some main issues that are important for your organization to understand better as a function of time, scope, and other decision variables. Identify the major stakeholders (or actors), internal or external, who would have an interest in these issues. Substantiate the relevance of your issues with supporting sources from your research.
Identify and discuss at least 20 key forces that would be shaping the future of the organization in conjunction with the emerging technology decision, from the perspective of the issues defined in the preceding task. Forces that you would want to consider might cover technological, business, economic, social, ethical, legal, or political factors, just to mention some typical domains. In an actual scenario-planning analysis, you would engage your organization, or possibly some external consultants, to rate each force in terms of its predictability (using an index from 1 to 5, where 1 is very unpredictable
Identify and discuss at least 20 key forces that would be shaping the future of the organization in conjunction with the emerging technology decision, from the perspective of the issues defined in the preceding task. Forces that you would want to consider might cover technological, business, economic, social, ethical, legal, or political factors, just to mention some typical domains. In an actual scenario-planning analysis, you would engage your organization, or possibly some external consultants, to rate each force in terms of its predictability (using an index from 1 to 5, where 1 is very unpredictable and 5 is very predictable) and importance (using an index from 1 to 5, where 1 is very unimportant and 5 is very important). For this project, assign and justify your ratings yourself on the basis of your research. Represent your forces as points labeled F1–F20 on an X-Y diagram, where the X axis represents the Predictability index and the Y axis represents the Importance index, as shown in the figure below (which depicts an example with twelve forces).
