DRIE WEST Networking and Lunch n Learn

Please join Barry Huybens from iStrategic Advisors Inc. for a discussion on

“Lessons Learned from Resilient Organizations and Communities”



The International Standards Organization (ISO 223) characterizes resilience as the ability of an organization to absorb and adapt in a changing environment. Too often, we hear about lessons from major events and disasters; however, many of these lessons are not learned. Instead, there are countless after action reviews and lessons learned reports that continue to identify similar opportunities for improvement. This presentation will explore some of the underpinning challenges that organizations and communities must address in order to adapt and become more resilient.
