We NOW live in a VUCA world

The environment in which organisations operate in has profoundly changed. For good. Indeed, this environment is increasingly known as “VUCA”. Volatile. Uncertain. Complex. Ambiguous. With ever-increasing connectedness between organisations, societies, and nations, so too the expectation that the marketplace will be fraught with ever-increasing VUCA.

IT’S FORCED ORGANISATIONS TO A CROSSROADS

What got your organisation to here won’t get you there.

For those who continue to employ old ways of thinking on strategic and operational issues, the challenges and consequences could be all-encompassing:

  • Costly delays and adverse media attention due to stakeholder outrage.

  • Declining performance and share price.

  • High staff – and customer – turnover.

  • Risks to organisational viability.

BUT – THE POTENTIAL BENEFITS ARE PROFOUND

Yet, for those organisations who have the courage and awareness to realise change is being imposed upon them and adaptation is a necessity, the benefits can be profound:

  • Innovative approaches to opportunities.

  • Creation of new markets, products and services.

  • Enhanced brand, reputation, risk management and performance.

  • Long-term viability.

That transition will be seismic for many. This is where David Ross, founder and Managing Director of Phoenix Strategic Management, comes in.
