PREPARE FOR 
THE FUTURE ...

BECOME VUCA PROOF

WHAT IS VUCA?

It’s become a fancy acronym: VUCA, short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity, and a container for “Hey, it’s messy out there!” It’s also misleading: VUCA blends four distinct types of challenges that demand four distinct types of responses.

 

That makes it difficult to know how to future-proof organisations and cities. It is easy to use VUCA as a showstopper, a way to drop the hard work of change and development. After all, you can’t prepare for a VUCA world, right? Actually, you can. Like biological species, organisations and cities are complex adaptive systems that continuously evolve, adapt to change and prepare for the unknown.

HOW TO PREPARE?

Today's challenge is to shape VUCA proof organisations and communities. How? Start to change mindsets and explore different approaches. Successful change leaders use frameworks which are built on new disciplines in science such as evolutionary biology, complex adaptive systems and design thinking.
 

The VUCA CANVAS is such a framework. Carved in colorful canvasses and inspiring workshop formats. Seamlessly designed to stimulate conversation about shaping viable organisations and communities. Multiple projects show deep change and tangible impact. Easy to use and ready to go.
