The difficulty in giving a verdict on the usefulness of scenario analyses is undoubtedly related to the diversity of the goals of individual exercises, differing levels of analysis across scenario initiatives, and variations in the techniques that are used to create scenarios. As the shortcomings in scenario analyses identified by Greeuw et al. indicate, scenarios can be evaluated in terms of both how the process leading to their creation is organised and what the qualities of the end product are.

A widely referenced definition of scenarios as “hypothetical sequences of events constructed for the purpose of focusing attention on causal processes and decision-points” also appears in the volume (6). Since then, scenarios have also been defined as “internally consistent view[s] of what the future might turn out to be” (Porter 1985: 446) or as “focused descriptions of fundamentally different futures presented in a script-like or narrative fashion” (Schoemaker 1993: 195). These definitions point to three key properties of scenarios.
