A scenario method for product development teams as an aid to plan for system innovation: a conceptual framework and a workshop outline
This paper presents a conceptual framework and a workshop design for a scenario method to help product development teams of companies in planning for system innovation for sustainability. The conceptual framework for the scenario method is developed as a result of an extensive desktop research based on the newly emerging system innovation theory, recent developments in futures studies literature/practice, and previous work aimed to steer system innovation. A workshop process is designed to implement the scenario method based on the conceptual framework. An action research methodology is currently being followed to improve and validate the method through iterative cycles of expert consultation and workshops.
