Demystifying Organisational Resilience with practical advice on how to enable your organisation to withstand crises successfully

Organisational Resilience Course 


What is Organisational Resilience?


Organisational resilience is an organisation’s ability to anticipate, respond and adapt in case of crises and sudden disruptions. In a dynamic environment, organisational resilience is paramount to ensuring both long-term business continuity and future success. Its aim is to allow managers and leaders to make the most of their opportunities, while confidently taking well-thought, measured risks.



Course Description


Using an integrated approach, organisations can ready themselves to react in a timely and effective way in case of crises. Many organisations have a weak understanding of what Organisational Resilience is and how it is structured, often leading to a lack of clear accountability. Therefore, their ability  to react effectively in case of crises is very limited. 


This course will demystify the domain and will outline the strong connection between Enterprise Risk Management and Organisational Resilience.

"I never expected an online training to be so energetic and interactive, but I didn’t feel at all like we were missing anything by not being in a classroom. So many great takeaways for me (as is evidenced by my copious notes taken), and I leave the training feeling inspired with plenty of food for thought. Really brilliant training, and I wish I’d taken it sooner! So thanks to you all for everything."
