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.
A one day workshop “Training on bad decisions - overcoming cognitive bias” on 28th November 2017 in Central London will help you recognise what contributes to bad decisions, before they are implemented. The next Futures Thinking and Scenario Planning course is on 5-6 March 2018. See Training Page
EU Horizon 2020
SAMI has undertaken a Strategic Foresight project supporting the third strategic programming cycle of the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, covering 2018-20. Building on existing Foresight research projects, we generated 4 scenarios of the future which were used to explore the implications for H2020
This brief guide looks at four possible outcomes from the decision by the UK to leave the EU. Rising above the immediate political infighting, it looks thirteen years ahead to show possible futures for the UK, the EU and the world.
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 CEO Gill Ringland has also re-published her definitive book, Scenario Planning in paperback.
