Businesses must increasingly function in a world that the US Army War College has dubbed “VUCA”—volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.* This VUCA environment can be seen as companies manage an array of challenges: rising demand from unexpected sources, business model threats from upstarts in entirely new sectors, a shifting geo-political landscape, the new breed of connected information systems, natural disasters or critical events that can threaten the very survival of the organization, and more.
