“Organizations are very complex systems, operating in a very VUCA world. How do then organizations constantly deliver results for all their stakeholders including society? How do organizations address the challenge of sustainability? The equation of success and sustainability is getting complicated with time. Existing variables in this equation are either getting eliminated or are getting more complicated and new variables are getting added without notice. A strong leadership team with a clear & compelling core purpose & vision, a winning & agile strategy, strategic planning & execution through highly aligned culture, structures, processes, systems, technology, analytics and most importantly competent, engaged and aligned external & internal people, are some of the ingredients of success and sustainability. How do you work on each of these and still harmonize different parts of the system to work together?
