As managers grapple with the challenges of the effects of climate change in a hyper-connected, global economy, they are paying increasing attention to their organisation's resilience - its capacity to survive, adapt, and flourish in the face of turbulent change. Sudden natural disruptions and increasingly vulnerable supply chains are increasingly the new normal. Business as usual is no match for this new world and many companies are unaware of how fragile they really are. If they are going to cope, management needs a new paradigm, one that considers as an interrelated whole the infrastructure, the built environment, the ecosystems, and the social fabric in which businesses operate. Resilient by Design provides managers with a more complete approach to creating lasting success in a changing world. Rich with examples and case studies of organisations that are designing resilience into the very fabric of their organisations, it explains how to connect the important external systems, stakeholders, communities, infrastructure, supply chains, and natural resources, to create innovative, dynamic organisations that survive and prosper under any circumstances. Resilient enterprises continue to grow and evolve in order to meet the needs and expectations of their shareholders and stakeholders. They adapt successfully to turbulence by anticipating disruptive changes, recognising new business opportunities, building strong relationships, and designing resilient assets, products, and processes. Written by one of the leading experts in how such companies are built and managed, Resilient by Design offers a better way forward in a world that is increasingly less certain than ever.
