What the Vuca’s going on?

I thought I was up to date on my milacs (sorry, “military acronyms”) like SMEAC, OODA, BOHICA, but I had not heard of “VUCA“.

VUCA is an acronym used to describe or reflect on the volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity of general conditions and situations. The common usage of the term VUCA began in the late 1990s and derives from military vocabulary[1] and has been subsequently used in emerging ideas in strategic leadership that apply in a wide range of organizations, including everything from for-profit corporations[2] to education.[3]

Hat-tip to PK!!
