10:05-10:40 - Dan Florian Stanescu (Romania): The NLP contribution to a VUCA n+1 model
Starting from the observation that nowadays, the need to operate in a world described by Horney, Passmore and O'Shea (2010) as a world characterized by its volatility, uncertainties, complexity, and ambiguity has become more evident than ever, we aim at identifying and reveal the need for a ceaseless VUCA model and to propose some NLP based contributions to the n+1 VUCA model. Over the years, the term VUCA has transferred to the business world, becoming a common expression due to rapid change manifested in the technological, political, financial, and administrative fields (Sarkar, 2016). In this context, we have analysed the existing VUCA models, and proposed the n+1 version of it. Within the current stream of events, including Brexit and especially the COVID-19 pandemic, traditional management methods seem no longer sufficient to address the amplitude and volume of change we are facing. Therefore, the VUCA 2.0 model was developed. The model comprising the same acronym is based on the following elements: vision, understanding, courage, and adaptability (George, 2017). But, in the last years technology has accelerated the VUCA world and, in 2020, the VUCA 3.0 popped out (Day, 2020). As the results of the analysis pointed out, the incredible pace and amplitude of change, together with the associated disruption in the way businesses are managed, call for a constant development of a never-ending VUCA n+1 model. With a wider spread of automatization, cyber systems and artificial intelligence, a new VUCA model will soon be necessary.
