What differentiates resilient organizations from those that are not? Does a crisis need to occur in order to see how resilient an organization is, or can that be diagnosed in advance?
Organizational resilience is not just about minimizing and managing risk exposure; it is about creating organizations with the agility to adapt to unexpected challenges and the capacity to seize opportunity out of adversity. Dr. Erica Seville offers the essential knowledge needed to enable organizations to thrive in a world of change and uncertainty, where resilience is an increasingly important strategic capacity. Drawing on a decade of research, she has identified 13 indicators to diagnose an organization's resilience and shows how organization resilience is a capability that can and must be proactively fostered and maintained over time.
Using case studies, diagnostic tools, and key actions and initiatives to develop and maintain organizational resilience, "Resilient Organizations" is essential reading for everyone tasked with developing strong organizations that can survive and thrive in crisis and change.
