As a strategist, scenario planner, and leadership advisor, Jim Butcher has over 25 years of experience engaging decision-makers and leaders with new insights to make better decisions leading to exceptional results — today and tomorrow. He uses advanced strategy and scenario planning approaches, innovation, and customized engagement and leadership models. Previously, Jim served as a Managing Director at Morgan Stanley in senior leadership roles and as a Senior Partner with the Global Business Network (GBN), where he worked with and learned from the original scenario planning masters Pierre Wack and Napier Collyns. In both roles, he developed deep expertise in strategic and scenario planning across all industry sectors, innovative approaches, sustainability, leadership and social impact investing. His early career with the Ford Foundation, Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and leading a Clinton Administration White House initiative to create the first sustainable U.S. National Energy Plan provided a broader foundation in cross-sector strategies, public-private partnerships, and more effectively addressing complex, system leadership issues that cross traditional institutional boundaries.
