The three-hour Future of Manufacturing in Illinois scenario-based Think-Tank Workshop was conducted virtually on August 5, 2021. During this process, four different future scenarios were created, that play out the potential future implications of key themes and trends in manufacturing.
The scenarios developed provide a valuable ‘testing ground’ to assess preferred future outcomes. The Think-Tank workshop aimed to:
Deepen the understanding and examination of how external events and local conditions could shape decision-making
Identify and understand the key influences, trends, and dynamics that will shape the future of manufacturing in Illinois looking out to 2030
Create and describe four plausible long-term scenarios for the future of manufacturing in Illinois
Explore alignment around a shared future vision for manufacturing in Illinois
