Uncertainty is a component of that situation, in which events and outcomes are unpredictable. Complexity involves a multiplicity of issues and factors, some of which may be intricately interconnected. Ambiguity is manifested in a lack of clarity and the difficulty of understanding exactly what the situation is. Dr. Makkar told about the technological disruption which we all are experiencing in social, professional, economic and business environment.
