A new Framework to deal with the Paradigm Shifts of our Times.

For over a decade we have been talking about and observing the acceleration in change; and the VUCA model has become a term that best encapsulated how we feel about the modern, accelerated world.

While it has at times been both confused and overused, it has been a useful framework to raise awareness and generate ways to overcome some of its associated challenges.

Our education system hasn’t been (and in most cases still isn’t) preparing us to the reality of the big paradigm shifts happening in today’s economies. On the other hand, few employees doubt that change is the new constant and learning is part of the job. Everybody knows the huge shifts companies like Facebook, Tencent or Airbnb have meant to the ecosystems they touch. Digital platforms have created a new breed of business models and it’s a war zone. We get it.

We like to work with a Resilience model because it takes us a step further. It looks at remedies from within ourselves, our peers and our organization.
