Chermack, Thomas J.; Coons, Laura M.; O'barr, Gregory; Khatami, Shiva
European Journal of Training and Development, v41 n4 p306-326 2017
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to examine the effects of scenario planning on participant ratings of resilience. Design/methodology/approach: The research design is a quasi experimental pretest/posttest with treatment and control groups. Random selection or assignment was not achieved. Findings: Results show a significant difference in reports of resilience for the scenario planning treatment group and no significant difference for the control group. Research limitations/implications: Limitations include the use of self-report perception measures, possible social desirability of responses and a lack of random selection and assignment. Practical implications: Practical implications imply that scenario planning can be viewed as a legitimate tool for increasing resilience in organizations. Social implications: Organizations with an ability to adjust quickly and recover from difficult conditions means reduced layoffs and healthy economic growth. Originality/value: While there is increasing research on scenario planning, to date, none has examined the effects of scenarios on resilience.
