Ready for Anything – Cognitive Readiness
Being ready for anything is a critical asset in the face of change and uncertainty. In this Project Bite we explore cognitive readiness and how to cultivate it to perform optimally in the face of VUCA – Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. Change is a fact of life, we shield projects from it by practicing skillful project management. Cognitive Readiness is the ability to be ready for anything, to face VUCA calmly; to respond rather than react. It comes into play when the effects of VUCA get through the shield. Learn the four key factors for cultivating cognitive readiness so you, your team and your organization can be ready for anything.
