Putting the “How-to” in Resilience:
Lessons from New Zealand
Join us on Thursday, July 11 from 3-5 pm at George Mason University, Arlington campus for an interactive discussion with Dr. John Vargo, co-leader of the Resilient Organizations program at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.
For the past eight years, Resilient Organizations has asked: What is it that makes some organizations able not only to survive, but thrive in the face of adversity? The program has transformed research into resilience tools including:
· Resilience Benchmark Tool allowing organizations to perform a self-analysis of resilience strengths and weaknesses and support a business case for internal resilience initiatives.
· Resilience Quick Assessment Tool providing high and low performance benchmarks for 13 resilience indicators.
· Resilience Thumbprint Survey creating a 5 minute snapshot survey that covers key resilience indicators, especially targeted for small and medium sized enterprises.
Please join us for an informative session and an international perspective!
