Do You Feel Lucky: Planning Under Uncertainty
Long-term financial planning is widely considered a “best practice” in public finance. This is for good reason, as it is important to think strategically and long term in a volatile and resource-constrained environment. However, this lack of clarity might discourage governments from planning at all or put governments at increased risk of failing to adapt to changing conditions. In this session, we will discuss how you can adapt your planning process to environments characterized by political, economic, technological and other kinds of uncertainty. Attendees will also learn how to adopt processes where plans are continuously reviewed and modified to be responsive to changing conditions.
