  1. Elgar Introduction to Theories of Organizational Resilience

    Elgar Introduction to Theories of Organizational Resilience

    Luca Giustiniano, Stewart R. Clegg, Miguel P.e. Cunha, Arménio Rego
    With organizational environments becoming more unstable, uncertain and equivocal, the concept of resilience has become increasingly significant for management studies. Resilience connotes organizational, team and individual capacities to absorb external shocks and to learn from them, while simultaneously preparing for and responding to external jolts. This book pinpoints the essential aspects of managerial and organizational resilience and offers insights that stimulate critical thinking. As the concept of resilience is essentially made up of contrasting forces, the volume presents some innovative synthetic interpretation that allows a deeper comprehension of the phenomenon and provides managers and policy-makers with a solid basis for taking their decisions.  Learn More
