Is Your Organization Resilient?
Resilience is understood to be the ability for an organization to withstand shock. It has come about as a way of describing the blending of disciplines in the market place with the best organizations having moved beyond Risk and Emergency Management. It has been described as the 'sweet spot' expression on the golf ball whereby with this combination of management disciplines it is possible to hit a golf ball out of any sand bunker.
What is the right combination of management disciplines to achieve resilience? The general view is that resilience is as much an attitudinal or cultural approach as it is hands-on management. That is, that resilience is as much a state of mind as it is documentation. It seems that resilience is possible when organizations put people first, plus have diversity available as part of the business model, plus they coordinate effectively with external parties. Some practitioners say that this approach is becoming a self-regulating expression. In pictorial terms this attitudinal approach to resilience leads to sector-wide responses in the market place as a continuity strategy. It is the drawbridge, moat, castle and network of castles approach to prevention, planning, response and recovery. Such thinking also enables effective approaches to horrific scale disasters such as from pandemics which have impacts across all sectors. The tipping point expression is now part of resilience jargon. It comes from epidemiology and it describes the multiple points of failure; all independent that a pandemic has across sectors.
