Planning for the Long Term

All organizations have assets.  The most obvious ones are physical but often non-physical assets are just as important, such as finance and data; and, of course, people and ‘know how’ are critical to success.

Many countries are investing huge sums in infrastructure; but this is only valuable if it provides the facilities their people want and use.  It is particularly important that new projects are planned to complement the existing built environment; and it is increasingly clear that integrating these structures and systems multiplies their usefulness.

We face big challenges, such as climate, pollution, energy and, of course, pandemics.  But we have opportunities, too, such as digital techniques and public awareness that we need to change.  We can increase resilience and sustainability by planning ahead and thinking holistically.
