PMI UK London Event: Navigating Through the Fog of Complexity. 22nd November 2023

22nd Nov London Event 1

  • Research indicates that the business environment has now become so complex now that we lack the cognitive skills to fully absorb the mass of information that is in front of us each day.
  • Making the right decision at the right time and being confident that we have done so, is becoming increasingly stressful and difficult.
  • We often face unintended consequences, making the future hard or impossible to predict and plan for.
  • We make plans that don’t work and develop strategies that become obsolete long before they are realized.
  • Comprehensive research from the World Economic Forum found that the ability to handle complexity is now the most sought-after quality in employees across industries all over the world.
  • Complexity in business is increasing - and is here to stay. This session will discuss the problem…and what we can do to address it.
