Planning the regional forecasting approach in Satakunta Region

The Regional Council of Satakunta renewed its forecasting work in light of the anticipated governance issues arising from the prospective structural change. The work enhanced the use of forecasting, preparedness for economic renewal, smart specialisation and reinforcing the culture of experimentiation. The prospective structural change was envisioned to be part of a continuous process of strategy work and decision-making, required in order to handle the future and had to be implemented in a resilient manner. MDI supported the Regional Council of Satakunta in renewing their approach, focusing especially on forecasting and tracking. The work was finalised in May 2016.
