Summary
This report documents the five steps of a strategic planning methodology (Assumption-Based Planning) RAND has developed over the last four years, provides examples of the methodology (showing its application in an end-to-end exemplar of the Army's long-range planning exercise -- Army 21), and suggests some lessons learned from the applications. The five steps of the methodology are (1) identifying important assumptions underlying an organization's operations or plans; (2) identifying assumption vulnerabilities within the planning horizon; (3) defining signposts (i.e., indicators or warning signs of a change in an assumption's vulnerability); (4) defining shaping actions (actions taken to avert or cause the failure of an assumption); and (5) defining hedging actions (actions taken to better prepare for the failure of an assumption). The document compares ABP with other methodologies and argues that the methodology provides a systematic way of thinking about and dealing with a future containing fundamental uncertainties about an organization's ends
