VUCA Leadership

We live in a Defense Acquisition world that’s constantly changing, becoming more unstable each day, where changes, both big and small are becoming more unpredictable – and they’re getting more and more dramatic, and happening faster and faster. Leaders everywhere are feeling the effects of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA) in nearly every challenge they face and every major decision they make. This micro-course explores surviving and thriving in a VUCA world where old methods of predictability are falling short.

This Online Training (OLT) micro-course, MOSAIC, is the only self-paced leader development program developed exclusively for Defense Acquisition professionals. All courses provide leadership learning and development opportunities specifically tailored by DoD subject matter experts in all functional disciplines to address Defense Acquisition problems within a Defense Acquisition setting.





Acquisition professionals at all levels who seek to learn ways to get things done with and through others, deal with workplace challenges, and prepare to take on new roles.
