Even In An Age of Uncertainty, Managers Still Must Decide

In an age of disruption, the only viable strategy is to adapt.
Sharrock's insight:

Greg Satell: "Since 1960, the average lifespan on the S&P 500 has fallen from 60 years to less than 20 and fully 87% of the companies on the Fortune 500 in 1955 no longer exist."

 

This statement and material that explore similar statements belong in history lessons and business courses at the secondary school and college levels (and they probably are). Such statistics drive home the lessons of  VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity). 


Dismissal of VUCA is at the heart of some kinds of politics and political stances, but is also at the heart of the war against science and education. It is far from understood, in terms of education and the goals of education. VUCA is why educators need to promote resilience, the ability to adapt and to develop strategies, and should include approaches to design thinking, (open) systems thinking, critical thinking, and STEM fields where experimentation, modeling, and simulations can be used to solve problems. Problem solving should include the arts which promotes knowledge and insight from imagination and memory.
