The Resilience Engine has been researching resilience since 2007. Initially the research aimed to answer two core questions: ’What is resilience?’ and ‘How can you build resilience?’. Results were published in 2009, validated by the end of 2011, and with further updated publications issued in 2016.
Since 2014 the research has shifted the enquiry into team and organisational resilience, holding the same core research questions, now on collective resilience. This second stage of our research continues today. Whilst it is complex and messy, the insights gained thus far on collective resilience are helping our client organisations underpin sustainable performance.
Using Action Enquiry as our overarching research method, we continue to explore how to build resilience in different contexts, and for different collective entities.
