We facilitated the Mont Fleur Scenario Exercise, a group of diverse leaders who worked together to create a road map for the transition away from apartheid.
A Learning History of the project (see below) outlines the process and outcomes in detail. Adam Kahane, who facilitated the workshops, also discusses this project in his books Solving Tough Problems and Power and Love.
Mont Fleur has inspired many other multi-stakeholder dialogues, both in South Africa and around the world.
“One of the best scenario planning exercises ever to be undertaken happened in the early 1990s, at a conference centre called Mont Fleur near Stellenbosch. Under the guidance of Pieter le Roux of the University of the Western Cape and using the expertise of Adam Kahane as facilitator, a group of prominent South Africans – which included Trevor Manuel and Tito Mboweni – put together a suite of economic scenarios that could play out in the new South Africa….So take a bow – all you who were involved in the Mont Fleur initiative. You may have changed our history at a critical juncture in the fortunes of the world.” Clem Sunter, former Chairman of the Anglo American Chairman’s Fund
