Since the release of the first edition in 2012, a lot has changed in the world of risk and organizational resilience. Global conflict, political realignments, environmental disruptions, pandemics and disease outbreaks, and cyber attacks are the plethora of threats that have and will continue to endanger the stability of the world. Alongside these risks and issues, technological and societal change is ushering in a new age of opportunity and progress.

What can organizations and people do to prepare for an unexpected future?

To prepare for the unexpected future, organizations need to be resilient. This requires:

  • Understanding the current, emerging, and future environments and contexts
  • People who are knowledgeable about, confident in, and capable of building and maintaining resilience in the organization and within themselves
  • A sensible approach to the use of guidance, frameworks, and initiative

Phil Wood’s much expanded and updated second edition explores, develops, and enhances the concepts discussed in his previous book in granular detail, analyzing our understanding of where we have been, where we are now, and where we should be going to develop resilient organizations.

This book will help you:

  • Optimize profitability by making decisions based on thought, analysis, and understanding ourselves, our organizations, and our environment
  • Recognize risks to your organization
  • Understand the drawbacks of ‘silo’ operations and maintain the organizational resilience capability through effective people
  • Think about plans that are cost-effective, relevant, and workable, and that will maintain organizational viability and competitive edge
  • Develop your capability, capacity, and a questioning, thinking mindset to match the fast-moving and developing world around you
