ALL4ONE TROPHY: Lessons in Business Agility from Offshore Racing Teams
Transient periods where volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) lead to a new order are regular recurrence in human history.
The context in which we are since the turn of last century is such a one.
And when they happen, these phenomena engulf us all, from the macro to the individual levels.
Being able to ride these instabilities to one’s advantage is a pre-requisite to come out of the “storm” unscathed or better still, ahead of the pack, to rebound and catch favourable winds in the new system.
Offshore sailors have been doing that since the inception of big races around the world in the treacherous southern seas, even managing to improve their performance, despite intensifying competition and increasing safety restrictions.
The trade-offs underpinning their competitiveness in the races ensure the optimal balance between value (winning the race), risks (bringing them to the minimum tolerable level) and scope (the choice of route options and what they entail for the risk profile and the value they’re after) can be reached.
This framework is embedded in the ALL4ONE TROPHY, a “serious game” based in offshore sailing races insights, developed to train people and organisations in the art of competitiveness and team effectiveness.
The ALL4ONE TROPHY can be delivered onsite of offsite, as a standalone training or integrated into a wider teambuilding programme.
