Agility at the Heart of the UK Defence Strategy

Many of the ideas we see driving organizational strategy are heavily influenced by the approaches used by the military. So it is interesting to read the latest UK defence strategy describing how they plan to face the implications of VUCA to have more dynamic, responsive approach in an increasingly digital world. Their answer: Be agile!

In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world, the only certainty is there will be further change. To meet that challenge, Defence must become agile, responsive and able to act in an integrated way. It’s through this integrated approach, which places the use of technology and data at its heart, that Defence will become more agile and more able to respond to the unknown. But to get there will require change, and Strategic Command leads Defence in making that change.
