    Abstract

    Summary This paper outlines the research aims and some initial findings from two systematic literature reviews that were recently conducted by the authors. Starting with the question 'how do managers think about the future?', this paper engages in a conversation framed within the context of corporate foresight on how stakeholders in shipping industry engage with it in turbulent times. Deriving from the findings of reviews of literature, it sets out the evolution of the application of the scenario technique in the shipping industry as well as the technique's impact on participants in general. The paper further describes the proposed research design to attempt to answer the proposed research questions and articulates some expected outcomes.
