There are many reasons why the business world struggles to adapt and evolve together with the VUCA (volatility, unpredictable, complex and ambiguous) environments. These include rapid changes in technology, legislation and, more recently, medical crises such as the COVID-19 global pandemic.
However, in my observations, the most critical reasons are the management ideas that organisations grew up with. The world has evolved so much that some of these once-upon-a-time innovative management ideas have lost their ability to produce positive and sustainable outcomes for organisations.
While external factors are mostly beyond the control of business leaders and managers, there are measures that can be taken, including evolving eternal culture. And this is where it is crucial for today's leaders: how culture-shifting can help develop more resilient, innovative and open-minded people in organisations.
Here are some ideas on how to get it done: 'Business School Thinking to Avoid or Minimise'.
