I've founded Corporate Foresight in my company in 2009.
Scenarios are one of the more useful instruments. Of course they are limited by
the experience and background of the participants - but they can give quick and
organized input for a strategic response as long as decision makers use them.

Since most governments use such (and most are very similar) sets of scenarios
because of lacking personal experience they all tend to react in a more or less
common manner (no polititian wants to make own mistakes in new situations - so
do what others do).

But we will see different reaction schemes very soon...
Up to now I cannot detect a force directing from the background - it's more like
a roused hen house as we say in germany.
