Many organizations spend valuable resources developing plans, procedures, and checklists to respond to emergencies, only to discover in the midst of a crisis—when it is too late—that the plan did not anticipate the reality. Failure to prepare is often the result of failure of imagination. To be resilient, organizations must be able to adapt rapidly to changing environments, collaborate efficiently across their stakeholder communities, and communicate effectively with constituents while applying what they know to new and unrehearsed situations.
