Future Readiness

We cannot know the future – because it does not exist yet – and we cannot predict it because we live in times of ultra-rapid change, characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA). Predictions and plans for an unknown and uncertain future are fraught with problems. Yet, some degree of planning is necessary to guide any strategic innovation.

How should your organizations prepare for uncertain futures and remain agile in the face of unexpected disruptions?
