Sept. 12, 2012 - PRLog -- Steelhenge’s Managing Director, Dominic Cockram and Dr Claudia van den Heuvel will be jointly presenting on “Organisational Resilience – the value in developing and measuring capability” at the CSARN Organisational Resilience Conference to be held in London on 28th September 2012.

"We’re delighted to be invited by CSARN (City Security and Resilience Network) to contribute to this important conference that will present the latest thinking on developing and embedding resilience across organisations,” said Isobel Nicholas, Director of Communications for Steelhenge.

“The last few years has seen a measurable increase in the frequency with which organisations are experiencing major incidents.  This, combined with the number of threats posed by our closely coupled business environment and the on-going economic climate, mean there has been growing interest in the concept of Organisational Resilience.  There is a common feeling that it must be a good thing but what does it mean in practice?  How do organisations set about becoming more resilient and how do they measure whether they are?”  

Isobel continued, "the presentation will discuss the current understanding of Organisational Resilience- what is it, what characteristics do resilient organisations have, and what capabilities are required for organisations to be resilient? A working model of Organisational Resilience will be presented to illustrate the interconnected nature of the concept- one that encompasses behaviours (produced by the organisation’s culture and ethos), management systems (such as Business Continuity, Crisis Management, and Risk, among many others) and processes, procedures and plans. Developing these models contributed to the creation of Steelhenge’s Organisational Resilience assessment tool. The use of the tool to assess an organisation’s resilience maturity level through an objective and quantifiable measurement of effectiveness across the entire organisation in terms of its resilience capabilities will be presented.”
