In Brad Barnett’s review of Dutch New Worlds, Scenarios in Physical Planning and Design in the Netherlands 1970-2000 he suggests that scenario planners are more concerned about models than application. I disagree. My personal experience has always focused on moving beyond the model as quickly as possible, and toward integrating scenarios with day-to-day work. Scenarios can inform many decisions, including those related to space and facilities. My work at Microsoft Netherlands demonstrated that scenarios can create the context for action—and my entire book, Management by Design, was inspired by the need for a work experience design methodology identified in Microsoft’s future of work scenarios.
