Matt Ranen

Much of Matt's expertise comes from nine years as a leader at Global Business Network (GBN), the pioneering scenario consultancy that helped elevate the field of scenario planning worldwide. At GBN, and its parent firm, Monitor Group, Matt designed and led customized client engagements across a range of industries, globally, and served as an instructor in scenario planning methodology for both public and private courses. While at GBN, he developed new elements of the scenario methodology to connect it to strategy, innovation and risk management decision tools.

Matt complements this with over eleven years of work in product management and new product development at a variety of technology and media companies--including start ups--where he helped define and launch new-to-the-world products and services. His industry experience provides a practical foundation for connecting the broad issues explored in scenario work to tangible client decisions and solutions.

Matt received an MBA from Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management and a B.A. in applied math from Harvard University.

He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and works globally.
