Ep. 89 Inbetweeners: Are we living in a VUCA, TUNA or a TURD environment

May 6, 2024

Have you been at a business event and someone, with a very serious face, stands on the stage and talks about a VUCA environment? If so, there is help! (and if not, still read on!)

In this short, sharp inbetweener episode The Occupational Philosophers dive into the world of acronyms used to describe the current business environment/s we are in. 

Amongst other things, they explore: 

  • What does VUCA mean? 
  • Why are all VUCA speakers so serious? 
  • What happens if you are VUCA’d? 
  • Why do people who speak about a TUNA environment seem happier? 
  • Will a TURD environment ever catch on? 
  • And seriously, (yes there was a moment), is it time to be a little more positive in the way we look at the world? 
  • What the acronym for the best and worst days may look and sound like 

The Occupational Philosophers hope you enjoy the show! 

FYI: The Inbetweeners episodes are just that – smaller episodes ‘in between’ the longer format episodes designed to give a little kickstart to enable you to be the most curious, creative and imaginative cat you can be – and have some fun in the process
