I qualified and practised as an architect in the UK before becoming an academic in management. I have been working for several decades in developing and using scenario methods and design-led approaches to address complex organisational problems.
Projects in which, with others, I have applied scenario methods include: e-government futures in Scotland, economic regeneration in north-west Tasmania, farm futures in western Victoria, and post-carbon futures in the Latrobe Valley.
With George Wright, I co-authored the book, Scenario Thinking: Practical Approaches to the Future. I have co-authored numerous journal articles on scenario methods and design-led inquiry.
