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.
A 7-year study has shown that firms with strategic foresight outcompete the average with 33% higher profitability and 200% higher market cap growth. Are you 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, for example to think about Brexit, so we have produced a comprehensive round-up of the approach:
Scenario Planning – A Primer.
For who wish to read more deeply, SAMI's Gill Ringland has also re-published her definitive book,
