You need plans that are effective in a range of scenarios.

SAMI’s strategy development skills can help you build robust plans.


SAMI’s core team of futures experts are experienced consultants, used to working at Board level and with the empathy and understanding to really get to grips with your issues. Our wide network of Associates means that we can assemble teams specifically to meet clients’ needs, bringing sector knowledge to the table as necessary. From this pool of tried-and-tested experts we handpick the team that is a perfect match for your project.

Everything we do can be bespoke to meet your particular needs, budget and timescale. We work closely with you to agree a suitable approach. You may want a long-term engagement that resolves a range of issues over months or years. Or a single half-day session that focusses your senior team and helps them reach a quick decision on a topical issue.

We often combine consultancy with training, so you benefit from long-term knowledge transfer as part of the package. We can conduct a study, organise a conference or embark on a joint project. We also help with implementation. As you can imagine, the possibilities are almost endless!
