Post Meeting Notes: Radical Uncertainty

These post meeting notes summarise the key outcomes from the PARC virtual event, Radical Uncertainty with John Kay. Uncertainty is a word we hear a lot in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. For many of us in business the future has rarely looked so complex and unpredictable. The publication of John Kay’s book Radical Uncertainty, coauthored with former Bank of England governor Mervyn King, could hardly have been more timely.

Post Meeting Notes: The Agile Dashboard

On 24th July CRF and PARC members gathered for The Agile Dashboard: Designing Agility Into Your Company. “If the keyword for the 20th century was ‘speed’, the keyword for the 21st century is ‘agility’.” So said Professor Joe Perfetti, our speaker for this session. That was before the coronavirus outbreak re-wrote the rules and re-ordered the business world. His statement is now more apposite than ever. Entire sectors have been devastated. Business leaders are now surveying the world after the lockdown with no idea of what business-as-usual will look like or even whether the very idea has now become outdated. Of one thing we can be sure, though, businesses will have to adapt and change fast.
