You need to make decisions in the face of uncertainty.

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.  

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? 

Through a series of workshops we work with you, using a range of foresight tools. We identify major drivers of change impacting your organisation, develop different futures and test alternative strategies. This participative approach also builds capability in your team, enabling them to become more future-aware, innovative and able to react more rapidly to unexpected change.

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.
