Environmental Scanning:a more advanced structure…
Evaluating scan ”hits:”
- Subjectively or objectively new?
- Confirming/reinforcing, or negating/balancing?
- Time horizon for ”emergence”?
Ideally, a scan hit identifies an emerging issue that is objectively new even to experts, confirms or is confirmed by additional scan hits, and that has been identified in time for social dialogue, impact assessment, and policy formation.
