How resilient is your organisation?

The BSI Standard BS 65000, defines Organisational Resilience as “the ability of an organisation to anticipate, prepare for, respond and adapt to incremental change and sudden disruptions in order to survive and prosper”. 

Organisational Resilience is more than just the ability to recover from a disruption or disaster, it is seen as a more holistic view of an organisation's business health and its ability to be successful. A resilient organisation is able to adapt to and prosper under changed circumstances or changing environments. The BSI regards Organisational Resilience as a strategic imperative for all companies, both large and small.
