The term VUCA was coined by the U.S. military in 1987 to describe the political chaos of the post-soviet, post-Cold War period – Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, & Ambiguity.  A concept that once applied only to the geo-political map now applies to conditions in our organizations.  We need a special set of skills to survive and thrive through VUCA.
Based on research & consulting experience in federal government and the private sector, you will learn about the impact of VUCA on individuals and organizations.  As we face unprecedented uncertainty for the foreseeable future, our staff and our agencies must be prepared for a marathon.
