2:35 – 4:00 PM – Getting control in a VUCA world

The world at large is ever changing, and our organizations and employees are doing all we can to keep up.  The days of going off to a strategic planning retreat, planning a 5-year vision and executing it are gone. We now operate in a world that is volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA).  What do you as the practice leader have to do to adapt to this new and ever changing worlds?

We will identify what causes a VUCA environment and how you can identify where your practice is on the continuum.  Then we’ll give tips to address your situation – whether Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous or all 4.  Looking through the lens of HR, we review the common needs of your workplace today and give tips and suggestions to align HR with the changes in the organization, ensure that you gain the resources you need, and establish yourself as the visionary team member that is helping to drive your organization forward.
