VUCA World: I’d rather have been picking plastic.
December 3, 2019
An original poem by drplasticpicker after a middle management meeting. Just in good fun to help me digest the topics presented today.
Today I went to a large management meeting
With doctors and nurses and managers I was seating
A VUCA world they were saying
To God we should be praying
Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity – they can be defeating
But as I sat there fading in and out of sleep
My attention the imported business paradigms did not keep
I’d rather be outside cleaning
Protecting Snowy Egrets they are preening
Vision, Understanding, Clarity, Adaptability – what the bleep?!
VUCA this, VUCA that, VUCA world, VUCA prime
VUCA past, VUCA present, VUCA future, VUCA crime
Note: This is strictly for entertainment purposes. It was a decent meeting. They ordered roast beef sandwhiches which I avoided, and I refused a plastic water bottle. VUCA that plastic!
