Key facts


Course information

The turbulent nature of the modern business environment requires a strategic perspective on sustainable solutions to ensure an organisation’s survival. By developing resilience, leaders can enable their enterprises to effectively anticipate, prepare, and respond to uncertainty – allowing them to not only bounce back but bounce forward and succeed.

Build your company’s defences against disruption at an individual, business, and systemic level with the Oxford Organisational Resilience Programme. Over the course of six weeks, you’ll focus on Programme Director Eleanor Murray’s exclusive 6S framework, and explore how to build resilience within the concepts of self, strategy, structures, social elements, supply chains, and systems. Using this framework, you’ll develop the skills to integrate a holistic approach to resilience throughout your organisation’s business strategy and operations, identify ways to build resilient relationships with stakeholders, and lead effectively through disruptions.

Gain the support structures and networks to strengthen your ability to thrive as a leader through long-term volatility, and walk away with a strategic plan for building resilience to ensure the sustainability and longevity of your organisation.

Is this programme for you?

Additionally, these professionals will discover how to leverage disruption for new opportunities and ultimately strengthen their organisation’s ability to thrive in the face of new challenges.
