Navigating the future path within organisations means dealing with ongoing changes and uncertainty. It is the level of resilience within an organisation that will determine its future success.
We no longer consider resilience as simply ‘bouncing back’ after a disruption. This is not effective in a changing environment. Resilience has to embrace ‘bouncing forward’ so that we can learn from the disruption and enhance our overall capability to deal with ongoing change and uncertainty.
Our recent research into resilience in organisations reveals three underpinning elements of resilient organisations - Exploring the Future, Elastic Thinking, Anti-fragile practices
These allow us to prepare for an uncertain future, think more strategically and put in place anti-fragile practices thereby creating a strong resilient organisation.
