In this session we will look at business resilience as a strategic capability, enabling organisations to navigate the increasingly complex and unpredictable market environment. We introduce Business Resilience Framework, a new comprehensive guidance for conducting business transformations triggered by external market conditions or internal organisational needs.

The framework presents a holistic approach for efficiently selecting and delivering business adaptation and transformation projects and programmes, sustainably and at pace.

The presentation is based on the material from a forthcoming book ā€œBusiness Resilience: A Practical Guide to Sustained Progress Delivered at Paceā€ due to be published by Kogan Page in April this year. The authors took advantage of 150 years of collective experience working with the UK government, professional and accreditation bodies, consulting and training organisations, and clients in a variety of industries, including healthcare, telecommunications, automotive, software, and higher education to create a robust guidance for sustained organisational progress.

Key points:

  • Why does classic strategic planning fail in the VUCA world?
  • A new paradigm focused on Business Resilience
  • Business Resilience Framework and how it facilitates successful delivery of the right projects at the right pace
  • How can one use this approach in their own organisation?
