Organizational Resilience

The uncertainties caused by disruption need to be anticipated long before they happen. But how do we do this when the future hasn’t happened yet?
In an increasingly connected world where supply chains became longer, delivery times shorter and expectations greater, how do we develop the confidence to cope and the reassurance to recover when disruption occurs – this year, next year, or the year after? At PROCYON we believe the answer is by becoming more resilient. The next question is how best to achieve this?

What sequence do all incidents have in common?

Organizational Resilience (OR) is the ability of an organization to absorb disruption and quickly adapt circumstances in a fast-moving and changing environment – without being overwhelmed by the consequences.

When disruption occurs, resilient means being able to continue to meet customer expectations, business objectives and fulfill stakeholder demands because what do to and how to do it has been planned in advance. The solution is being able to anticipate, prepare for, respond to and recover from disruption on terms which are under your control.

Many of the required attributes and activities may already be in place -but not yet optimized, harmonized and synchronized for best effect.

At PROCYON we take care of optimization. We offer our clients a bold and imaginative approach for confronting disruption: by integrating the management disciplines of Risk, Crisis and Business Continuity into a continuous process. Time-sequenced plans and procedures focus on preparation, mitigation, emergency response and continuity into a single stream of activity reducing the cost of governance and improving situational awareness.

PROCYON Group provide flexible consultative support across the resilience agenda focusing on risk, crisis and business continuity management. PROCYON consultants – experts in OR – will help embed proven business process in risk, crisis and continuity management into an organization.
