  • A brilliant video. Challenging and great food for thought!
    The VUCA environment operates at the edge of chaos where the forces of instability and stability compete. Under these circumstances complexity theory applies including concepts like chaos, field theory, strange attractors, emergence and the butterfly effect, where small changes can lead to major and unintended consequences (see Wheatley: Leadership and the new science; Senge: The necessary revolution; Jaworsky: Synchronicity; Scharmer and Kaufer: Leading from the emerging future; et al) Strategy under these conditions are based on these principles (see Brown and Eisenhardt: Strategy on the Edge of Chaos). Not easy and of course uncomfortable and experimental. We indeed see trough a glass darkly, and sensemaking is fraught with difficulty.
