the Org. has always planned for the future. They probably have a 5 or 10 year purchasing/building/expansion plan right now!
I should have made m comments clearer. Of course, the org. has always planned its own future. What's the saying, the first priority of any organization or bureaucracy is its own self-perpetuation? Business-wise, as a publishing house, they plan as well as any billion-dollar corporation.
What they failed to do was plan for the future in its leadership role, as the religious leaders that millions look to for guidance. Other churches groom leaders from within, have education programs, recreation programs, counseling programs. The idea is, "we're going to be here for centuries, milleniums, so let's have a foundation to build on for future generations".
The WT is not like that. They have never made any plans for any future generation of JWs. The end is coming soon, so don't even bother to have children! Their idea of counseling is "read the Bible". Their idea of education is, "the Theocratic Ministry school". Their idea of recreation is, "Study the Watchtower together". Their idea of cultivating leadership is, "Joe Blow is getting 10 hours a month in service and comments at the meetings, so let's make him an MS / elder".
Now that people are beginning to get disillusioned, now that they see (at least subconsciously) that Armageddon isn't coming soon, what happens? Elders quit or are pushed out, and there are few young people who can be bothered to take an interest in "reaching out" for "spiritual privileges".
If they don't collapse beforehand, in about 15-20 years, there is going to be a serious leadership deficiency at the local level, as curent elders age & die off, and there are no "good" replacements for them.
