Come join us. Your next innovation awaits.
Innovation is the sum of two parts. First, a pattern, not previously seen, becomes visible. Second, an application of the pattern, not previously visible, becomes seen.
Our 2016 conference, Association for Strategic Planning was held in San Francisco and dove headlong into the wellsprings of innovation. Here we gathered numerous thought leaders who have recognized the patterns and applications of organizational strategy.

Some testimonials from past conference attendees include:
"The ASP conference is a great way to get informed and get connected with passionate strategic planners across industries and geographies."
Director, Corporate Planning, Cisco
“My first conference felt like I was at a family outing. I felt immediately that I belonged to the group, like it was part of my extended family…and I didn’t know a soul there. That was my first conference in 2009…I joined ASP on the spot and have been attending every year since. A fantastic opportunity for learning, sharing, networking and growing.”
President and CEO, Balanced Scorecard Institute
"Strategy is a provisional paradigm that increasingly demands an ongoing refresh of intelligence and knowledge. The secret is out. A favorite way of staying ‘au courant’ for CSO’s and strategy professionals is to attend the ASP annual Conference.”
Frank Mruk SMP
Associate Dean-Business and Strategic Planning
New York Institute of Technology
Attending the ASP annual conference each year is an easy and fun way to be on the cutting-edge of theory and practice for strategy development and execution that I can pragmatically apply to my practice. I especially enjoy the many provocative and helpful questions from fellow attendees and interacting with leading strategy thinkers.
Joyce Reynolds-Sinclair, Ph.D.
Managing Director, GEO Group Strategic Services, LLC
"I walk away from ASP's conferences and summits learning new things that I can apply right away in my organization, I get to interact directly with leading thinkers on strategy, and I build new professional relationships that last."
Independent Strategic Management Consultant
“I greatly appreciate how I learn new approaches and techniques at the ASP conferences that help me be a better strategist and leader of the process. Engaging folks in strategic planning can be a challenge, so learning new, fresh approaches leads to much more effective plan development and management!”
