Scenario management in information technology can be used as a tool to go from confuting to managing scenarios with reactivity to proactivity. The US Department of Homeland Security has conducted several scenario based simulations to determine emergency preparedness. When applied appropriately these can improve planning and provide training that can help to reduce on-the-job mistakes. Some organizations understand the value of scenario planning and use effectively to assess new situations and train employees, manage crisis preparation and facilitate recovery.
