About the Topic
We live in unpredictable times. Now, more so than ever, Taleb’s Black Swan has gained in relevance and significance. A Black Swan is something unpredictable that could cause an organization to collapse.
These Black Swans could appear in the form of the Global Financial Crisis, Brexit, North Korea or Demonetisation all of which have varying levels of unpredictability. Taleb suggests that rather than trying to predict a Black Swan, we must prepare our organisations to face them.
The pandemic has once again highlighted the failure of our organisations to be adequately prepared for the unexpected turbulence or shocks of our current global environment, or even arguably the expected ones. Our reliance on Resilience or Robust systems has not provided adequate protection in this VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous) Environment.
Against this backdrop, Mark Carney, the former Governor of the Bank of England, has recently argued “We are entering a world in which firms will be expected to prepare for black swans by valuing anti-fragility .. and planning for catastrophe.”
Dr. Bendell teaches us how to do just that, as effectively and as efficiently as possible. Through his workshops, participants learn about the common fragilities in organisations and how to avoid them, the meaning of Anti-Fragility, how it applies to organisations, where to find it and how to build it at all levels and in dimensions across the organisation.
