Join Sheila and David Roberts for the last Professional Masterclass workshop of 2023, where they will introduce the Business Resilience Framework to enhance organisational agility and improve sustainable progress.
Business resilience is increasingly recognised as an essential element of sustainable business design and operation, yet few holistic approaches exist to date that would allow the practical implementation of resilience-focused initiatives.
The Resilience Professionals team has developed a roadmap and set of tools to help you with this implementation. In this workshop, we will introduce tools to start your roadmap journey to embed the resilience focus in your organisational and project delivery processes.
Attend the Masterclass to experience the application of one or more (depending on time) of those tools in a practical working scenario to improve business resilience in your organisation.
- An overview of the Business Resilience Framework
- A real-life example of the Business Resilience Framework in an agile programme
- Practical experience of using a Business Resilience tool (and a template)
- Access to further Business Resilience templates to utilise in your organisation
Masterclasses are 2-hour workshops, designed for Professional Level members to hear from experts in business agility, share their own experiences and network in breakout groups. We source experts to discuss topics that Professional Level members are interested in, so please email [email protected] if you’d like to make a request. We also choose speakers based on our Competency Framework, to provide Continuing Professional Development (CPD) that helps you take your practice to the next level.
Masterclasses are designed to provide CPD that you can apply to your practice. Instead of passive learning, attendees are encouraged to get involved with discussion, share ideas and collect suggestions on handling the challenges of agile practices. Small breakout groups provide a space to problem-solve issues less publicly, with a group of people who understand agility.
