Doing Business in Africa – part 2:
Managing the new VUCA World

VUCA world

The current pandemic confronts corporate leaders from all over the world with difficult decisions and trade-offs. Whether and how companies will emerge from this downturn will also depend on the preparedness and ability to navigate through Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, in short the new VUCA world.  

To learn from Africa?

African companies will also be hit hard by the impact of COVID-19. However, African companies are much more used to a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous business environment. 

The web-multilogue “Managing the new VUCA world” will look at what European companies can learn from Africa’s entrepreneurs and managers.
