Case studies in strategic threat analysis and futures work
Strategic threat analysis is heady stuff. But so is futures work. Or fat-tails analysis.
Threat assessments and predictive estimates easily rank among the most demanded analytic products, particularly in strategic intelligence or foreign affairs analysis.
On this page we will periodically publish Case Studies that demonstrate the use of different Structured Analytic Techniques for analysis of real-world issues.
Some of the case studies are our own, designed for use in our course.
Others are those handed in by our students as course Home Projects. They are published with authors’ permission as submitted and graded, without any editing on our part.
We find it truly impressive – and motivating – to see how students previously unfamiliar with SATs climb a very steep learning curve to produce work of such a high quality.
Either way, our case studies are intended to be both educating and captivating reading. Enjoy!
