About the Event

Training program

In the program you’ll develop a VUCA mindset, learn to work with the VucaCanvas® and meet like-minded people. The newly learned mindset and framework will help you to shape organizations and places which have the capacity to embrace VUCA and turn the uncertainty of a rapidly changing world into opportunities. 

You will experience working with the VucaCanvas® - a new complexity-based framework, canvasses, e-tools and a workshop format. The training program includes certification as a VucaCanvas® practitioner with the skills to hold your own (on-location and on-line) workshops to help others shape VUCA proof and vibrant organisations and communities. The certification is a lifelong (individual) right to use the VucaCanvas® in your work and/or practice.  

For whom

The training program is designed for people who work in complex and dynamic situations. People looking for a framework and practical approach to shape VUCA proof teams, organisations and (urban) places. Whether you work in an organisation as a change leader or as a consultant/practitioner looking to include a complexity based framework in your practice.  

Training outcomes
