“Four Lenses of Agility”
There are problems that have solutions, and there are problems that can only get better or worse.
Some problems are so complex, entangled, and multifaceted that we cannot approach them alone. They change and morph as quickly as our ability to understand them. They are most commonly known as wicked problems, and we need a new way to approach them. Urban planner Horst Rittel used the term wicked problems in the 1960s to describe problems that spring from many diverse sources. Rittel observed that there are a set of problems that cannot be resolved with traditional analytical approaches. He described wicked problems as emergent, evolving, shifting, and often without one right answer.
The COVID-19 pandemic can be best described as a “wicked problem”. Wicked problems are complex by nature and ones where the relationship between cause and effect can only be considered in hindsight. The challenge for leaders in making sense of a complex, contradictory, paradoxical, or ambiguous problem has been made even more difficult by advances in technology, big data, globalization, and cultural change.
In this session, we will discuss how wicked problems require reframing and expanding leadership competencies.
