Futurists do not predict the future; instead, they observe all its possibilities. They then use those observations to chart the course of their preferred future. At Lamp Rynearson, we believe that the future – with all its hopeful potential – is not a set of immovable gears and cogs within a predetermined clock; instead, it is a fluid and organic space that can be fostered. As 2023 continues to slip into the sands of time, we are advancing our efforts to define our future – fearlessly.
Casting our vision towards 2024 and beyond, we measure uncertainties, decipher signals of change, and consider trends. We are asking why relentlessly. This week, we officially launch our strategic planning process. Through an interdisciplinary approach, we draw from various fields of knowledge to develop a more comprehensive understanding of how fluctuating factors may interact to shape our future. Both conventional and unconventional insights inform us as we maneuver through our new 10-year strategic planning process. In the tapestry of human endeavor, our strength is magnified when we unite our talents and aspirations toward a shared future. Across the company, we have engaged with our Community of Solvers to question assumptions, challenge conventional wisdom, and explore new solutions to address challenges and maximize opportunities. Recognizing that our strengths complement each other, the horizon of possibility expands.

Being a futurist requires a succinct combination of analytical skills, creativity, open-mindedness, and a willingness to explore the unknown. It is about embracing uncertainty and using it as a basis for strategic thinking and action. In the dynamic landscape of today’s world, innovation and adaptability are paramount to our success. As we strive to stay ahead of the curve, I invite each of you to embrace the power of futurist thinking. Together, we can forge a path that positions us as pioneers in our industry and contributes positively to the world we are helping to shape.
With a Future of Purpose,
Nancy Pridal, PE, ENV-SP
