We reflect on the state of affairs of transitions modelling in relation to the broader enterprise of transitions research, to other fields and the grand challenges of transitions. We conclude that a scientific approach is required, that mainstream transitions research is failing in that respect and that there is a role for modelling to become the scientific and methodological conscience of the field. Acknowledging that transitions modelling is currently not rising to that challenge, we take a very critical look and identify opportunities to expand our scope and raise our standards. Transitions are too important to leave to the storytellers.
