Enterprise Resilience: Boosting your corporate immune system

Businesses are under constant pressure. Leaders need to get a grip on managing resilience-related activities instead of blindly focusing on cutting costs and aggressively streamlining operations.

The critical issues

Resilience equals success

The last decade has seen countless examples of businesses brought to their knees by a lack of foresight or poor crisis management. Many events have exposed the shortcomings of traditional risk management, putting resilience at the top of board agendas. Yet many organisations are still not making the connection between resilience and success.

Expertise is missing

Many organisations are making lazy investments as a result of ill thought-through decisions. They lack the capabilities, tools and approaches needed to make their investment in resilience effective, and too few understand or measure the factors that contribute to their resilience long term. Are these gaps you need to fill?
