Who is who in VUCA mode? / by Kate Hammer

VUCA is a term coined by the US Military to designate situations that are volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. This pretty much describes Britain since the EU Referendum. 

Post-Referendum Britain reveals two kinds of people and organisations: Value Creators and Hedge-Funders. The latter are defined as any person or organisation who profits from turbulence, mayhem or despair. Hedge-Funders includes gossips, doomsayers and other people who would rather howl or moan rather than solve a problem. These two types vie for attention, and the predominance of one over the other will determine whether Britain's withdrawal is a fait accompli or a reversible decision amenable to course correction.
