Beyond business continuity: building organisational resilience

''Resilient businesses are able to deliver sustained competitive advantage while managing uncertainty effectively.''



As organisations undergo (and expect) more, not less, uncertainty, we see that the companies that respond best to major events have done more than prepare business continuity plans. They have embedded a strategic resilience capability into the way they manage their businesses.

Whether preparing for the advent of a pandemic or for launch in a new market, building resilience into the organisation and its strategy enables the organisation to withstand uncertainty and, crucially, also to pursue emerging opportunities.

Organisational resilience takes a much broader view than conventional business continuity planning, which tends to focus on the recovery of critical operations after an unexpected event. Resilience incorporates wider aspects of an organisation's operations and market standing, including its supply and distribution chains, customers, investors and brand.

PA Consulting Group works with organisations in both the public and private sectors to deliver a tailored resilience solution that is aligned with the organisation's overall strategy, affording responsiveness, agility and sustainability through both upturns and downturns.
