Discover how organisational resilience can generate a competitive advantage and long-term sustainability for your business.
The turbulent nature of the modern business environment requires a strategic perspective on sustainable solutions to ensure an organisation’s survival. By developing resilience, leaders can enable their enterprises to effectively anticipate, prepare, and respond to uncertainty – allowing them to not only bounce back but bounce forward and succeed.
Build your company's defences against disruption at an individual, business, and systemic level with the Oxford Organisational Resilience Programme. Over the course of six weeks, you'll focus on Programme Director Eleanor Murray's exclusive 6S framework, and explore how to build resilience within the concepts of self, strategy, structures, social elements, supply chains, and systems. Using this framework, you’ll develop the skills to integrate a holistic approach to resilience throughout your organisation's business strategy and operations, identify ways to build resilient relationships with stakeholders, and lead effectively through disruptions.
Gain the support structures and networks to strengthen your ability to thrive as a leader through long-term volatility, and walk away with a strategic plan for building resilience to ensure the sustainability and longevity of your organisation.

Will I have the time?
GetSmarter's learning model is designed to help you, as a working professional, improve your skills without compromising on work and family responsibilities. The programme work is broken up into weekly, manageable modules, with incremental deadlines, designed to help you pace yourself over the duration of the programme, and allow you the flexibility to work when it suits you best.
At the beginning of each week, you'll be presented with all the lectures, notes, and assignments necessary for completion. Once registered you’ll be assigned a personal Success Manager. You will have access to your Success Manager, who will help you set goals and track key milestones, manage your time, and field any administrative requests you might have.
What is the online campus?
The Online Campus (OLC) will be your virtual classroom for the duration of your programme. Through its easy-to-use interface, you'll have access to a diverse variety of programme content formats, including interactive video lectures, module notes, practice quizzes, Prezis, assignment briefs, and additional web resources.
On the Online Campus, you'll also be able to ask questions and interact with your fellow students and Head Tutor through the OLC discussion forums. If you're experiencing tech issues or need advice from your personal Success Manager, you can use the OLC to get in touch.
