  • Course Overview

    If you feel that increasing complexity and interdependence in the economic environment is directly impacting your ability to be personally and organisationally successful, you're not alone.

    A recent study by IBM of 1500 Global CEOs highlighted "the escalation of complexity" as the biggest single challenge confronting them. Significantly, it also revealed that they feared their organisations were not equipped to cope with this challenge effectively.

    Being a master of established knowledge and technical skills alone cannot be relied upon to deliver success. To survive and thrive today, leaders and managers must be able to make faster decisions, with less information, and mitigate the greater risk that goes with that.

  • Key Learning Benefits

    Highly developed complex thinking abilities are required, and this short course will introduce you to a remarkably effective framework for their development and execution.

    VUCAP: Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity and Paradox

    The elements comprising the VUCAP framework characterise the current context for leaders, and provide a clear path to help you manage sustainably within it.

    Each participant's level of exposure to Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity and Paradox will of course vary according to their individual position and industry sector.

  • Program Structure

    This course is highly experiential. Participants will gain significant personal growth and development through a range of lively discussions and interactive activities for each of the five topics.

  • Who Attends

    The program is designed to enhance the capabilities of senior managers, team leaders and professionals to build on their decision making skills for personal and organisational success. It will appeal equally to the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.
