With an increase in the prevalnce and complexity of global challenges facing Governments and Organisations alike, ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia-Ukraine conflict, to an ongoing rise in extreme weather events and rapid technological shifts, decision-makers must learn from historal precedent and better prepare for the ongoing changes that lie ahead.
