Reos Partners in partnership with the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS, Kuru) invites you to a short course on Scenario Planning for national transformation, to be held in Kuru, Jos on August 17th and 18th 2015.
Reos Partners is bringing its unique methodology of Transformative Scenario Planning to Nigeria for the very first time. This methodology has been applied to governance, business, development, civil society and a host of social issues across the world.
Why Transformative Scenario Planning?
When trying to solve tough economic, social, or environmental problems we often find ourselves frustratingly stuck. And, when we face opportunities for change, as Nigeria does now, we may find it difficult to reach across traditional divides to seize these opportunities together.
How do we work together to build common strategies that will move us with more certainty through uncertain times? Based on international experiences of working with complex challenges, Reos Partners invites you to participate in its latest learning event.
Who should attend?
The target audience are influential people who are thinking about the future of Nigeria and who see themselves as prospective convenors, sponsors or participants in forthcoming Nigerian TSP exercises. We especially encourage policy makers, policy implementers and thought leaders from business, government, academia and civil society to attend.
When important parts of our society seem fractured, how can we find ways to work together? Scenario planning is one of the tools that can bring different people together – people who might not normally want to talk or work together – to think about their high-risk social challenges in creative ways.
Taking lessons from some projects Reos has worked on, including the drug problems in the Americas, education in Tanzania and food security in South Africa, we invite you to hear what we have learnt from running these large multi-stakeholder projects.
We will discuss when these approaches are important to apply, where they are best placed and the critical factors that can lead to success or failure. This is a learning event and we look forward to reflecting on what’s worked, and importantly, what hasn’t.
