Karostech has worked intensively together with some of the new experts in its partner network in order to conceptualize and design the first version of Vucability Assessment tool. The first version of the tool has been launched September 21st in Indonesia at Tangeran Selatan Innovation Forum with vast international audience.
VUCA is a term originally created within US Army to describe the volatile (V), uncertain (U), complex (C) and ambiguous (A) times we are facing today. Vucability assessment tool, named as the evaluation and mapping system of the VUCA approach (EMS-VUCA 1.0) is a three dimensional model, where the vucability level of a company/ecosystem/region can be evaluated and improved based on the evaluation results.
Ilkka Kakko was invited to have a workshop with the participants of Innopolis Foundation’s International Training Program. The title for a half-day event was ”Workshop on Third Generation Science Park Concept” and there were about 30 attendees, mainly STP managers and governmental policy makers from 15 countries.
The introductory presentation by Ilkka and the following work in small teams generated a lot of dialogue and the feedback after the event was really positive. This session held on November 12th was part of a continiuos collaboration between Innopolis Foundation and Karostech, which started earlier on the summer, when Dr. Seo from Innopolis Foundation was in Finland on a visit organized by Karostech.
