Forecastability, chaos and foresight
Roles of leadership in coping with uncertainty are explored in this paper. Through an in-depth, empirically (CEOs of top, ASEAN publicly listed corporations) grounded discussion, the authors argued for the presence of a deep cultural divide between Eastern and Western leaders on coping with uncertainty. In the process, the authors devise a two dimensional, organic versus forecastability model of strategy behavior for polarizing East-West leadership styles. Aspects of the Sun Tzu's Art of War and 5,000 years old, I Ching are discussed with respect to foreknowledge and foresight respectively.
