ALD 0050 VUCA Leadership
This is an Online Training (OLT) course. We live in a Defense Acquisition world that’s constantly changing, becoming more unstable each day, where changes, both big and small are becoming more unpredictable – and they’re getting more and more dramatic, and happening faster and faster. Leaders everywhere are feeling the effects of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity or Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) in nearly every challenge they face and every major decision they make. This micro-course explores surviving and thriving in a VUCA world where old styles of managing predictability are falling short.
