VUCA – Making Rational Decisions in an Irrational World

 

The world in which we operate has changed. It is no longer a world of boom followed by bust but a world of constant change and turbulence. The VUCA world (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) is here to stay. This ‘turbulent, “permanent white-water” world’ requires a different approach to driving performance and ensuring continued success.

 Being able to make the right decisions; to understand and mitigate risk in your environment and to maintain trust and reputation all become vital in a VUCA world. This requires new skills and behaviour identified by leadership thinkers who have turned to lessons learned from the military to create strategies for surviving and thriving. 

Going beyond personality and behaviour, our work has its foundations in Value Science. This enables a values based approach based on HOW you do things vs. what you do and provides clarity and understanding of individual, team and organisation capacity to respond effectively in a VUCA world.

 

‘Organisations that are successful in a VUCA world are very clear about where they are going, yet very flexible about how they get there’

(Bob Johansen, ‘Leaders Make the Future’).

How can we help?

At Catapult Solutions we understand these challenges and have a range of tools and interventions that enable organisations to operate effectively in this new paradigm so that:

 

  • Volatility yields to Vision
  • Uncertainty yields to Understanding
  • Complexity yields to Clarity
  • Ambiguity yields to Agility
