Transition management has been applied in different governance contexts over the past 15 years, showing its modularity and also its ability to facilitate participatory strategic planning and agenda setting. This book chapter presents the operational framework of transition management as developed to guide the design of a three-series workshop in four case studies in Europe. What is unique in this contribution is a well-developed operational framework to explain how every phase and every step of transition management can be applied and tailored to climate change discussions and agenda setting. Another unique point is the introduction of climate scenarios as the context for developing transition pathways and acknowledging deep uncertainty in future actions. For each step, we elaborate on the lessons learnt and provide suggestions for future development and applications from the realisation of the transition management workshops in all four case studies.
