Leading in the future would require managing challenges in a business environment that is highly disruptive and predominantly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA). Technological advancements in artificial intelligence, robotics, sharing platforms and the Internet of Things are fundamentally altering business models and industries. These changes are often not only alien to businesses; they are taking place at unprecedented speed. Leaders at all levels need to develop the relevant competencies and skills to successfully adapt to new realities when leading in a disruptive VUCA World.

In particular, leaders today must deal with:

1. Volatility: Things change unpredictably, suddenly, extremely, especially for the worse.

2. Uncertainty: Important information is not known or definite; doubtful, unclear about the present situation and future outcomes; not able to be relied upon.

3. Complexity: Many different and connected parts: multiple key decision factors, the interaction between diverse agents, emergence, adaptation, coevolution, weak signals.

4. Ambiguity: Open to more than one interpretation; the meaning of an event can be understood in different ways.

Leading in a VUCA world not only provide a challenging environment for leaders to operate and for executive development programme to have an impact: it also provides a much-needed range of new competencies. The new reality is resulting in the realisation that new and different capabilities are needed for leaders to succeed in this new normal.
