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.
Evidence from McKinsey and others shows that companies with a long term view outperform their peers. You need to be one of them.
Since 1989, SAMI’s experienced consultants have delivered over 250 foresight and strategy projects in 21 countries. Our expertise and empathy will help you gain the “aha” of insight, scenario planning for alternative futures, and make robust decisions in uncertain times.
SAMI’s consultancy, research and training will support your futures thinking and help you develop strategies and policies that will stand the test of time.

Scenario Planning
Several clients have asked for a quick summary of the whys and wherefores of scenario planning (eg to think about Brexit), so we have produced a comprehensive round-up of the approach:
