Slide 5

We’ve already delivered over 200 projects in 21 countries. SAMI can help you gain the “aha” of insight, plan for alternative futures, and make more robust decisions.

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.
• One aspect of our work on foresight is the issue of governance. The right governance is essential for resilience. Our focus is on "robust decision in uncertain times" and hence the framing of what will be the right governance structure going forward.

SAMI is 25 years old
Since our launch as St Andrews Management Institute at the University of St Andrews in 1989, the world has come a long way.
For our 25th we decided to run a virtual year-long celebration: in the first six months we looked back over the 25 years with a blog posting on each; over the second six we blogged about key factors affecting the future. Collected summaries of these blogs are now available.
