The new world order BANI stands for:
B = Brittle – Businesses are susceptible to catastrophe in the current interconnected fragile world
A = Anxious – The Post Pandemic approach to Work Life balance with boundaries blurring has resulted in in people’s personal as well professional life. The need to keep checking what’s app, social media, news feeds, wanting to know all the time what is happening is driving anxiousness.
N = Nonlinear – world where events seem disconnected and disproportionate.
I = Incomprehensible – lack of control over things,
