Build the capacity to deal with complexity and uncertainty, to be fit and effective
Today’s increasingly complex and uncertain world has a huge impact on our social and working lives. Complementary to traditional techniques, individuals, organisations and societies therefore require an additional approach and a practical framework.
What is FAUC®
FAUC® is a framework to help people, organisations and (urban) places to better understand their environment, to better diagnose their ecosystem and to act more effectively. FAUC® is rooted in scientific theory and based on many years of experience.
How FAUC® works
FAUC® leverages five capacities: Entrepreneurial, Alert, Adaptive, Resilient and Creative. Developing each capacity is essential to deal with surprises. FAUC® can be applied through conversations, workshops, serious games, assessments, and change journeys.

The theory explains the acting of humans in a complex and uncertain world. THAI is a synthesis of three strands in science: the Austrian school of economics, John M. Keynes’ and Frank Knight’s work on uncertainty and the modern complexity theory. read more...
