Future scenarios are a time-tested tool to prepare for emerging challenges and to improve decision-making. PNSR's Vision Working Group and CSIS joined together for the launching of a new book, which explores the role of foresight and visioning in government decision-making, and proposes a Center for Strategic Analysis and Assessment within the Executive Office of the President. This video includes the following discussions: Introduction and Welcome from Sheila Ronis, Director, MBA/Management Programs, Walsh College; The Project on National Security Reform with Jim Locher, President and CEO, Project on National Security Reform; and The Vision Working Group Report: The Need to Establish The Center for Strategic Analysis and Assessment with Sheila Ronis.
