In a fast changing complex world, leaders and their organizations find themselves dealing with unprecedented uncertainty and ambiguity. To achieve success they must sort through disjointed changing information, make prudent decisions and take appropriate timely action. Contextual intelligence helps sort through available information, make sense of possibilities and choose the best course of action. Contextual competence goes beyond contextual intelligence and requires astute action to plan, resource, execute and achieve desirable results. Contextual competence requires action learning, innovative thinking, ability to take agile action. This paper explores some key dimensions of contextual competence and its importance in leading and managing during unpredictable changing conditions.
