Building adaptive resilience

Sudden market shifts, turmoil in international politics, rapid technological advances, and climate change all combine to create a turbulent and unpredictable business environment. 
This booklet presents key findings from a major, three-year study of New Zealand organisations that have had to cope with major change as a result of the Canterbury earthquakes. It presents a framework for the future that can help your organisation to adapt, survive, and thrive in turbulent environments.  

Resilience is perhaps the most important positive resource in turbulent contemporary settings.
