With the Covid-19 pandemic introducing countless uncertainties into the world, organizations ranging from hospitals to school districts to transit agencies are using scenario planning to plan for the future, according to an article and interview published by the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy. 

The interview features Robert Goodspeed, an assistant professor of urban and regional planning at the University of Michigan, a board member of the Lincoln Institute's Consortium for Scenario Planning, and author of Scenario Planning for Cities and Regions: Managing and Envisioning Uncertainties (Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, April 2020). The interview touches on the kinds of organizations that could benefit most from scenario planning during and after the pandemic, recommendations for getting started with scenario planning, and examples of pandemic responses already generated by scenario planning

Goodspeed will also participate in a webinar hosted by the Michigan chapter of the American Planning Association today, May 14, available for AICP CM credit.
