As the world goes digital and technology keeps defining the new way of life, many organizations are struggling to figure out how they should go Digital and face up to the Digital disruption challenge that is happening in their respective industries. The bigger challenge that is staring us right in our face is that this world has become VUCA – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous.
The last five years have challenged every business leader to survive and sustain performance. VUCA makes economic changes and it’s impact a difficulty to face with. There is no way to go back to the old world as this VUCA World is the new normal. But one can look at this VUCA world as an opportunity because at the same time that it is Volatile, it is also Vibrant as we can do all the things that we never did before, especially with technology. Instead of thinking Uncertain, it is actually Unreal in which the physical and digital come together. Instead of being Complex, it is Crazy considering all the simultaneous things we can do at the same time and how the pace of life has changed and finally instead of being Ambiguous it is Astounding in terms of the impact and return on investment that we could potentially have in this VUCA World. So VUCA can be scary if you think Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous and at the same time, VUCA can be Vibrant, Unreal, Crazy and Astounding if you look at it from the point of view of opportunity.
This change requires a new thinking, making sense of changing markets, developing new strategic directions and energizing your people. It’s time to hit the RESET button.
Winners in this new VUCA world will have to think bigger and different, to harness the growth potential of new markets and technologies, to redefine markets in their own vision, and engage customers and employees in more relevant and inspiring ways. You will win through ambition and innovation rather than legacy and scale, out-thinking the competition, focusing on the new hotspots and of course by embracing digital in more human ways. Winners in this VUCA World are the Game Changers who define new purpose and strategy, innovate business models and brands, harness networks and movements, to create a positive impact financially, and make a real difference to people’s lives. Are you fit and focused on the future? A future that you can re-imagine, then reset your direction and finally re-energise your people!
INFOCOM is back with its 2019 edition with a focus on “WINNING IN THIS VUCA WORLD”, where great minds will come together to find ways to face the new challenges through innovation, speed, customer collaboration, resilience, technology, and clarity. We will have opportunities to deep dive into the significance of technology disruptions, changing expectations from customers, shift of wealth from west to east, facing geopolitical uncertainties, shortening product and business cycles and get acclimatized to the new age of business.
Come join Business and Technology Leaders and Visionaries at the INFOCOM 2019 Conference while they deliberate on their experiences and highlight on the principles and policies that will be essential to win in this VUCA world.
