‘Reading this book is a must for practitioners, academicians and researchers who deal with uncertainty of ever-changing context of business. Delighted to go through it.’
The authors of The VUCA Company have advanced the scholarly contribution with its sequel, The VUCA Learner. They have tried to express how in a VUCA world the learner must be prepared to unlearn and then relearn in order to counter the unexpected and unknown. This text is a must-read for all those preparing for a leadership role.
In a truly turbulent and unpredictable (VUCA) world, this book identifies what it will take to produce learners who are sufficiently able to dive into experience with others without fear, fully engage, step back and learn from their experiences—yet be ready to relearn again and again. Since students both desire this and are scared to death of it, it is a monumental undertaking but totally necessary for economic and societal survival.
There may be no more important issue facing labour markets than helping people be more adaptable in their work and careers. Markets are more competitive and rapidly evolving than in the past. Careers are less likely to be along defined paths within a single company. Artificial intelligence is changing jobs in dramatic ways. More skilled jobs are being automated than ever before. To stay ahead, we need to invest in the cognitive, social and innovation skills that distinguish humans from machines. This book comes at exactly the right time, with exactly the right topic.
The VUCA Company provided insights on the failures in a VUCA world. The same authors, in their sequel, The VUCA Learner, have expanded their research and insights into how learners should react in unexpected and unknown scenarios. Leaders, working in a networked digital world, will find this book useful and inspiring, which will help them survive and prosper in a VUCA world.
A wonderful little book, full of inspiring insights
The VUCA Learner is an interesting book which brings new insights into mechanisms of learning in a VUCA world. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who may need not only inspiration but also very useful tips about how to become a VUCA learner.
VUCA describes perfectly what is happening in the global business world today. Observation, absorption, self-validation combined with selective application are the tools for individuals to swim in this ocean of digital networks.
Thinking outside the box to solve problems of today and yet imagining an innovation-filled bright future. In this sequel to their VUCA Company, Suhayl Abidi and Manoj Joshi enrich the readers with their wisdom, intellect, analytic rigour and pragmatism.
The VUCA Learner provides considerable insight into learning and the demands placed on the learning in the continuing rise of the knowledge age where the individual must excel at continuous learning.
Reading this book would be must for practitioners, academicians and researchers who deal with uncertainty of ever-changing context of business. Delighted to go through it.
