Human civilization has come a long way. In the last century or so science and technology have advanced dramatically. So much so that it has ushered in a new world: a VUCA world.

VUCA stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity.

These are the 4 characteristics of the world we inhabit at present. Whether you look at the world's economy, health, technology, media, all of them reflect these characteristics.

What's responsible for this? It's digitalization, big data, artificial intelligence, robotization, globalization, terrorism, financial crises, climate change, and global shifts in power.
