Our futures experts have delivered over 200 foresight and strategy projects in 21 countries. Their experience and empathy will help you gain the “aha” of insight, build scenarios for alternative futures, and make robust decisions in uncertain times.


SAMI: The home of scenario planning
The world is changing. Fast. You need to make decisions in the face of uncertainty. But you can no longer depend on looking to the past to make decisions about the future.
The bespoke consultancy, research and training in scenario planning and other futures and foresight techniques that SAMI provides helps organisations develop strategy and policy with an eye on the future. For example:
• Organisations facing total upheaval in their business environment can use our scenario approach to establish a robust role.
• For a government building a future vision for Higher Education, we helped produce a strategy and implement it.
• Our futures thinking approaches aid organisations looking to create strategies for new business opportunities.
• Good organisational governance relies on foresight to give resilience. We develop scenarios to help you design a robust governance structure.
