Geary Sikich provides five questions that you can work through to assess whether your organization’s planning is resulting in brittleness.
Good intentions do not make for the creation of a robust/resilient organization. Business continuity plans, disaster recovery plans, emergency response plans, etc., that are standalone documents generally reflect good intentions – whether to meet regulatory requirements or to address governance. I would have to say that this should be a wake-up call for executives in all industries. We live in a complex and interdependent world. Complex systems are full of interdependencies that are hard to detect. The result is nonlinearity in responses to events, especially random events/shocks.
