Grand global challenges include wicked sustainability ones associated with human influences. Among these are climate change in relation to increased atmospheric presence of CO2 and methane, global warming and increasing intensity and incidence rates of extreme weather events, drought, and desertification; food availability and distribution; water pollution, air pollution, and soil contamination; and the connection of these to disease, violence, and terrorism. Wicked challenge traits are discussed in relation to enterprise excellence, sustainability, resilience and robustness (SEER2). The value of SEER2 and selected of its enablers – especially supply chain proficiency – in addressing intersections of selected wicked sustainability challenges are highlighted.
