VUCA 乌卡时代 -- VUCA是volatility(易变性),uncertainty(不确定性),complexity(复杂性),ambiguity(模糊性)的缩写。VUCA这个术语源于军事用语并在20世纪90年代开始被普遍使用。随后被用于从盈利性公司到教育事业的各种组织的战略这种新兴思想中去。这是一个瞬息万变的社会,充满了各种不确定性。在这种复杂多变不确定的世界里,我们一起来探讨过去,现在和未来。同时在祖国建国70周年之际,我们也希望通过这一主题来与大家一起挖掘中国过去70年在各个领域上的发展与变化。
Planning for the future is never easy - this statement is especially true in today’s world where the unpredictable and unexpected have become the “new normal”.

The concept of VUCA was first forwarded by the military at the end of Cold War.

At that time, the U.S. saw a more complex and diverse geopolitical map forming, since the army had to quickly adapt to the tactics of the adversaries which were obscurely organized and even sometimes entirely virtual.

They boldly made a prediction that, an era of VUCA is coming soon.

As time went by, that prediction has proved to be true.

Nowadays, VUCA applies not only to military, but plays a part in all aspects of our life.

Take the business world for example. Companies are now developing under an atmosphere that is increasingly defined by disruption because of this unpredictability, instead of predictability.

Thus, business leaders should pay more attention to the rules of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) head-on and prepare themselves to deal with more VUCA moment.

The era of VUCA has arrived.

20 years ago, Internet was known to a limited audience, but is now an irreplaceable part of our life.

Cities, technologies, the nature, and mankinds are changing so fast that no one would know what might happen in the next moment - the VUCA magic works on everything, anytime everywhere.

Let's dive together into the VUCA world in the past, nowadays and as well as in the future.

Let's get VUCA together!
