Business Transformation for a VUCA world

Coronavirus and work from home means Business Transformation for a VUCA world

With a VUCA environment in business today, managers can no longer rely on linear, cookie-cutter techniques to inspire people. Managers and their teams need to be adept at navigating a volatile, confusing world with confidence, resilience, and adaptability.

No organisation is spared in a VUCA world and relying on past experiences to manage new challenges is why 70% of leaders are unhappy with the outcome of their change management programmes.

Can you adapt quicker than your competitors?


Yesterday’s experiences, training, qualifications do not provide the change leadership to cope with tomorrows challenges. It is no longer good enough to find the one way or the one management tool: standards give way to individuality.
