VUCA stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity.
The VUCA framework is a reminder to consider how to lead and adapt to the challenges of living in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world.
In his book Leaders Make the Future, futurist Bob Johansen provides counterpoints to each that leaders can use:
- Volatility yields to Vision
- Uncertainty yields to Understanding
- Complexity yields to Clarity
- Ambiguity yields to Agility
We live in a VUCA world, but we can handle it.
The VUCA framework originated in the US Army War College.
VUCA is an acronym, as opposed to an initialism. Also see OODA Loop.
