Three ideas to help you find your way out of the chaos

N° 305, April 2020

The facts are clear: you and your colleagues and teams have different ways of reacting to chaos. It’s a good thing too, because you need diversity to transform the unpredictable into a source of innovation. The Singularity University has developed a questionnaire to help you identify your innovation profile in the face of chaos. Test yourself!

Do you have a contingency plan? Great, you're finally going to get to use it! But look beyond your list, because not all the measures on it will be relevant to whatever exceptional situation you find yourself in. You have to improvise, and your leadership qualities matter more than any action plan.

An asymmetric threat is unpredictable, and the likelihood of it happening is very low. While this type of threat is extremely expensive to prevent, when it happens, it causes considerable damage. Does this remind you of anything…? Asymmetric attacks tend to provoke feelings of powerlessness, but you can find ways to limit the damage.
