Navigating through the VUCA world with ease

What does VUCA even mean?

The environment for organizations today change every minute. Be it a global value chain, complex problem solutions or trouble spots such as the COVID-19 virus – the challenges and requirements are volatile (V = volatile), uncertain (U = uncertain), complex (C = complex) and ambiguous (A = ambigous). Employees and managers of today and tomorrow work in this field of tension. Our tailor-made (virtual) trainings & coachings offer effective levers for the development of relevant future competencies.

We are intercultural experts

Our DNA is cultural expertise. Accordingly, we can translate the challenges of the VUCA world into a local context. The certified ICUnet trainer team will accompany you with business experience, cultural expertise and personality. The focus is on practical solutions and training modules that have their finger on the pulse: from Unconscious Bias to leading cross-generational teams. Whatever the current topic in your company, we adapt our training contents to your future requirements. We always work with rational reflection (competence transfer) and scenic imagination (transfer to the individual context: action competence development). For this we use, among other things, digital potential analysis tools and e-learning.

We are digital

The learning of today and tomorrow is changing dramatically. Your employees and managers need modular learning platforms that are independent of time and place. We develop e-learning products and potential analysis tools in-house. We see development as a co-creation process, which we carry out together with our customers. Following a needs analysis, we define which skills are to be trained exactly, what the training programme should look like and how success can be measured. You set the requirements for our tools. We develop them according to your needs.
