RadarScan Issues Management

Early action is the theme of this book by Mark Affleck, who writes, “If an organization waits until all the issues and forces reveal themselves and then acts, it’s always too late. RadarScan Issues Management helps you develop a culture that not only accepts, but looks for harbingers that may signal a new trend or threat even when it seems implausible.” Affleck shows how to anticipate issues, paint scenarios, generate intelligence on strategic issues, and plot issue trajectories. Tools described in this succinct manual include the Issue Probability-Impact-Risk Assessment worksheet, the Issue Summary, a 20-step Persuasion Guide, and the RadarScan Issues Management Model, which begins with assessing the Organizational “Soul” as a values filter for action.
