Organizational Resilience in BANI World

Organizational Resilience in BANI World

Organizational resilience is an indispensable aspect of the contemporary world, where the notions of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (BANI) have become everyday realities. As Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant argue in their recent book, resilience can be compared to a muscle that contracts during prosperity and expands during adversity.In this article, we will explore the concept of organizational resilience in the BANI world. We will examine how to balance resilience and flexibility in modern business and how to leverage this balance in strategic planning and organizational management in the BANI world.To address VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity), you need 4 key abilities: Vision, Understanding, Clarity, and Agility.

For many, this revelation has posed obstacles, impacting both their endeavors in digital transformation and the overall vitality of their organizations.Businesses are trying to find explanations and solutions in an attempt to hold onto their positions. Let's see what is the peculiarity of the BANI world, and why it causes wariness:
