Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous: Leading through Adversity

In the last decade, the level of complexity in the workplace has increased dramatically and this has created significant challenges for leaders in their day-to-day work. VUCA is a mental model that stands for volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. This framework deconstructs the accelerating pace of change experienced by leaders today and demonstrates the need to learn faster and raise the bar to adapt. The workplace environment and context that VUCA creates is one of constant change, with unclear information and outcomes, unknown variables and drivers, and a lack of clarity about the meaning of events. Unfortunately, our tried-and-true strategies such as root cause analyses and strategic planning are insufficient tools in the complexity of VUCA, yet often they are the only strategy our organizations and systems have at their disposal.

In this session we will breakdown the components of VUCA and illuminate its antidote. Reentry leaders will develop an organizational mental model that can be used to think through complex and adaptive challenges while moving forward with their vision for the future of their organization and teams.
