The danger of a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic or the Ukraine war lies in its element of surprise. Many companies were caught unprepared. As in nature, therefore, resilience, i.e. the ability of a system to withstand change, is now crucial for dealing with abrupt change and for future success. After all, pandemics, geopolitical conflicts and climate change will continue to challenge companies in the future. Scientists at Fraunhofer IMW have therefore investigated which parameters contribute to the resilience of companies and organizations. They have developed practical offers for more entrepreneurial resilience and analyzed the potential of the circular economy for resilient value creation.
