[ 4.1 ] In this session we will explain what crossover levers are and how they are used and practice identifying shared levers between scenarios.

[ Module 4 ] Defining: How to decide on the preferred future you want. In this module, we shift from creating scenarios to actually using them. After asking “What could happen?” it’s now “What are you going to do about it?” The answers are a special set of strategies called "crossover levers." We discuss what exactly such levers are and practice identifying them.
