The accent on strategy in the territorial planning has been widely discussed in the literature in recent times. One of the topics that has attracted broad attention, the strategic environmental assessment, according to some authors consists in a systematic process of anticipated assessment of impacts of strategic decisions. As such, it is much more appropriate to think of it as a decision support tool, rather than the decision-making process itself. In this paper, we will advance few methodological proposals, and propose a set of future scenario building tools bundled in the system The Time Machine which is based on a cross impact analysis model. The framework tries to offer some features, such as user-friendliness, lowcost, modularity, high communicability and transparency, adequate also for participated planning contexts. Such characteristics are more and more of crucial importance for the success of evaluation, strategic planning and participation processes, intended in a wider sense as the occasion for creation of value at local level and learning both at local and at the level of the institutional decision-makers.
