Professor David Denyer of Cranfield Executive Development, and Deloitte’s Rick Cudworth, Partner, discuss crisis and resilience, in this webinar recording and help you tackle the year's number one priority.
During this 60-minute webinar we explore:
Why is resilience the number one strategic priority for business leaders today?
We find ourselves in a time of unprecedented challenges. Shocks and crises are becoming an everyday occurrence. Even more difficult in many ways is the adaptation required over a more extended period as the context changes. This type of need for change can be insidious, only becoming apparent when it is too late. Sticking to the status quo which served well to date may lead to disaster in the longer term.
Why was the global preparedness level in business for the pandemic so lacking?
What can we do better and how to plan for future threats and leverage opportunities?
Where do I start?
The crucial question and the basis for our webinar. What are the practical steps businesses can start taking tomorrow, to build organisational resilience?
From HR and Talent: capability building and building skills, to the right leadership skills for executives.
How do we implement it?
Assessing the benefits and drawbacks of various approaches to building organisational resilience, from incremental internal capability development to large-scale, transformational change programs.
This webinar was tailored for both business leaders and talent leaders alike as leadership teams worldwide grapple with this urgent strategic priority.
