The Annapolis Institute


The Annapolis Institute is a private, nonpartisan think tank.

The Institute, established in 1993, has two purposes:

(1) To help leadership at all levels to anticipate the forces shaping the lives of people, communities, and institutions in the 21st century -- including technology, demography, politics, the economy and culture; and

(2) to advance principled leadership in the management of business enterprises, government agencies and non-profit organizations.


To help leaders anticipate change, manage transitions, and set new directions in the context of principled decision-making.


To connect leaders with evidence and insights that are timely, actionable and thematic; and to help leaders set directions and make things work by establishing a culture of principled leadership.
