Corporations face a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment. The established antidote is risk management. But this is not enough; the main driver is actually people. Are you a disruption-fit leader? Is your team ready to face a volatile world? Will it resist the pressure? Is your team ready to integrate the new generation of talents?
PIKES™ Team Readiness Assessment & Workshops are based on IMD’s R&D Director Marco Mancesti’s management framework called “Integrated Alertness Leadership Model“.
In that model, the maturity of the team plays a crucial role, and this is what we measure. The teams with highest scores are teams who are ready to work in a system close to self-management or holacracy. Not only this approach favours innovation and early identification of issues, it is very much valued by the younger generation of talents.
The “PIKES” framework established by Marco Mancesti identifies the five key ingredients for teams to achieve implementation success.
PIKES stands for Purpose, Integration, Knowledge, Ecosystem, and Self. Although we look at each dimension separately below, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This is particularly essential for task forces or teams in charge of key implementations.

So what does VUCA have to do with leaders? The acronym for volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity is used to describe or reflect general conditions and situations, not people. Yet we’ve all come across leaders who trigger VUCA, or even worse – they exhibit VUCA characteristics themselves!
Corporations face a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) environment. The established antidote is risk management. But this is not enough; companies must integrate alertness into the whole process of execution to stay ahead.
