SAMI: The home of scenario planning
The world is changing. Fast. You need to make decisions that will stand the test of time. But you can no longer depend on looking to the past to make decisions about the future.
SAMI provides consultancy, research and training to help organisations plan strategy and policy with an eye on the future. For example:
• Organisations facing total upheaval in their business environment, leading them to question their role
• A government building a vision for Higher Education, helping them turn this into a white paper and implementation
• Organisations looking to create new business opportunities by approaching clients through futures thinking.
We’ve already delivered over 200 projects in 21 countries. SAMI can also help you gain the “aha” of insight, plan for alternative futures, and make more robust decisions.

SAMI is 25 years old
SAMI Consulting was 25 on 30th November 2014 – St Andrews Day.
Since we were launched as St Andrews Management Institute at the University of St Andrews in 1989, the world has come a long way.
For our 25th we have decided to run a virtual year-long celebration, looking backwards and forwards. This will combine Ted type talks, blogs, twitter and LinkedIn, a virtual garden party and a final celebration in December 2015.
Our first event was a series of six short webinars held on 1 December 2014.   See the schedule and listen to completed talks here.
