In times of uncertainty, volatility, and change – when the path ahead for the business is tough – many firm leaders pull back their long-term, strategic planning efforts. This instinct to pause (or stop) is understandable – but it’s wrong. What’s needed in a moment like this is not less planning, but more – though the how and what of that effort must also change.

As a part of our long commitment to AEC firm success, and to preparing engineering firm leaders for the extraordinary industry transformation and opportunities that lie ahead – and now especially today in this new pandemic abnormal – we have this year reimagined our own approach to strategic business planning – supporting even greater client success in today’s transformational, 21st century, Fast Future world.

In this lively, engaging, and entertaining session, we’ll reveal some highlights of our retooled planning paradigm, and share with you both operational success secrets and crucial next steps for you and your firm to consider.


  • Why comprehensive, data-driven, and highly engaging organization assessments are essential to planning success;
  • How to create a more complete futures scenarios model, across a fuller range of business possibilities – and to design strategies that win across multiple paths;
  • How the soul-searching, deep-dive, aspirational visioning session is done well – even when leaders can’t easily gather in person;
  • Striking an optimal balance between important and urgent – long term strategic objectives and short term necessary actions;
  • Best practices for building momentum and sustained action – and for developing next generation leaders through the work itself;

Please join us for this revealing look at how progressive, successful, and future-focused organizations put the power of strategic business planning to work in their firms today – and prepare your firm and team now for agility, resiliency, and sustainable Fast future success!
