A VUCA world

Hatched by the US Military thirty years ago to describe the world after the break-up of the USSR, this alien sounding acronym for volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environments has transitioned into civilian life as a model for navigating today’s challenges which demand new and fast ways of seeing and reactingCan we really prep for anything anymore –  or is this simply an excuse to avoid strategic planning given wholesale unpredictability? Our profession prides itself on its ability to respond in pressing situations; could the VUCA way become more crucial for our organisations in the current landscape?
