Organizational resilience is an organization's ability to absorb and adapt in a changing environment in order to deliver on its objectives and survive and prosper. More resilient businesses can foresee and respond to dangers and opportunities that arise as a result of abrupt or gradual changes in their internal and external environments. Increasing resilience may be a strategic corporate aim, and it is the result of solid business practices and effective risk management. The resilience of an organization is influenced by a unique interaction and combination of strategic and operational factors. There is no absolute metric or clear aim; organizations can only be more or less resilient.

Commitment to enhanced organizational resilience contributes to:

-An improved ability to anticipate and address risks and vulnerabilities;

-Increased coordination and integration of management disciplines to improve coherence and performance;

-A greater understanding of interested parties and dependencies that support strategic goals, and objectives.
