Research area: On success in a world full of uncertainty

Abstract

We attempt to apply the model of Adaptive Cycle of Change (ACoR) to a case of a virtual team with the aim to first, provide a better understanding; and second, explore the connections between the Black Swan/ Antifragility theories of Nicolas Taleb and the ACoR. Therefore, the Black Swan theory is extended with new instances, providing a stepping of swans ranging from black, over grey to white swans. The applicability of Virtual Teams in the ACoR model is elaborated based on an own illustration, including all elements of virtual teams. The findings in this study therefore provide connections of the ACoR, Taleb’s theories and virtual teams.
