10 Why a scenario analysis? To deal with the future we have to deal with possibilities. Analysis will only tell us What is. Edward de Bono, Parallel Thinking Thinking through [scenario] stories, and talking in depth about their implications, brings each persons unspoken assumptions about the future to the surface. Scenarios are thus the most powerful vehicles I know for challenging our mental models about the world and lifting the blinders that limit our creativity and resourcefulness. Peter Schwartz, The Art of the Long View: Planning for the Future in an Uncertain World From: Foresight Horizon Scanning Centre, Government Office for Science, UK. Scenario planning. Guidance notice

11 What is a scenario (analysis)? Scenarios are mental models of possible futures Qualitative methodology which explicitly takes uncertainty into account, provides space for the involvement of stakeholders, And it can ultimately lead to guidance for action. It is not: an attempt to say, which future is more likely or a forecast of hard data …

12 How will this be achieved? Map and describe the current and future challenges in relation to the quality of work (contractor) Map and describe social partners capacities and initiatives Desk research, existing material: EWCS, REP study, mapping of social partner initiatives at national level; data from the COMs study (country profiles) Limited to 8 countries for new input 1-2 expert workshops, including social partner representatives from 8 countries To identify challenges and drivers related to quality of work and employment in hairdressing and interlinkages Moderated by an external contractor Contractor will draw up 4 different scenarios Desk research Interactive To be reflected upon again by experts
