"Nokia Adaptable Leader Programme - Turning VUCA to Advantage - The ALP Journey"

Target Group
This webinar is dedicated to both companies and L&D providers (Business Schools, Executive Education Centers/Consultancies).


In a fast-moving market where financial agility is critical, securing funds for a new leadership development solution is never a foregone conclusion. This is especially the case when the company in question is in the midst of a major transformation including strategy renewal, culture change and a cost-efficiency drive.

The partnership began in late 2012, between NSN/Nokia (a global leader in technology and solutions for communication service providers), Complex Adaptive Leadership Ltd (CAL – a world leader in applying complexity science to leadership in a useable way) and Abilitie Inc (a world leader in business simulations).

The Adaptable Leader Programme (ALP) story is about three concurrent journeys – contextual, programme and participants’:

  • The Contextual journey is Nokia Siemens Networks’ (NSN) turnaround to become the new Nokia.
  • The Programme journey saw the ALP emerge into what is described by middle to senior management participants as “state of the art”, “life changing”, and “the best leadership development”
  • And Participants journey through experimentation / discovery, applying complexity science in a fast-changing global telecoms market within their volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) corporate world.

In this session, Nokia, Complex Adaptive Leadership & Abilitie representatives will share their success stories and also point out some of the interesting challenges they came across over the last years.
