Uncertainty is particularly prevalent: we grapple with uncertainty when dealing with the unknown; we acknowledge that we increasingly live in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world replete with limited knowledge and uncertain and unpredictable patterns; we endeavour to acquire resilient traits that allow us to adapt and adjust; and generally, we seek more agile approaches in order to respond to a world that seems to change faster than we are able to adapt, or learn.
