In 2014, BSI together with industry and backed by government published BS 65000 the Worlds first Standard for Organisational Resilience – this standard provided clarity and guidance around Organisational Resilience and identified good practice and how to adapt to change through the application of existing BEST PRACTICE standards.
The latest guidance on Organizational Resilience, BS 65000, defines “Organizational Resilience is the ability of an organization to anticipate, prepare for, respond and adapt to today’s volatile business climate to survive and prosper”.
In other words – being equipped to “Stand the test of time”
In many ways a resilient organization adapts to a changing environment in order to remain fit for purpose.
To quote Charles Darwin: “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, not the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”
All CEOs and Senior Leaders are the care takers and custodians of the business with a huge and increasing responsibility to look after its products, process and people within its Operations, Supply Chain and Information Governance processes to ensure adaptable, agile, and accountable leadership. In this way leaders aim to leave a positive legacy and hand over a stronger and improved business to the next care taker.
