A Resilient Score measures the capacity of organizations to anticipate significant disruptions, adapt to market events, and create sustained market and shareholder value. Driven by industry best practices and government executive orders, it is a timely and comparative benchmark derived from over 100,000 public sources and key performance indicators, providing subscribers with actionable intelligence. Top level scores are freely available to anyone who is curious about the resilience of the world in which we live.
Resilient Corporation generates organizational resilience metrics. The company's Resilient Score is based upon the largest big data repository of business and technical resilience indicators on approximately 18 global industries including 2,200 corporations and government agencies. The company’s Resilience Framework continuously collects, sorts, analyzes and scores publicly available data across 10 dimensions of resilience. With this data in hand, anyone can discover what are the 100 most resilient cities in the world. Or research who are the most resilient corporations, business partners, suppliers, ecosystems, and government agencies.
Why is this important?
Over the past several years, business, academic and government leaders have become aware that certain organizations respond better to disruptions than other, often similarly situated organizations. Technological discontinuities, regulatory upheavals, geopolitical shocks, industry deverticalization and disintermediation, abrupt shifts in consumer tastes, and “hordes” of nontraditional competitors require companies to become resilient in order to remain successful. The days are long gone when executives could maximize profits or governments could protect its citizenry in isolation. Our domains are interconnected.
Today's leaders are in constant motion - evaluating plans for the future within context of a dynamic global economy. A multi-dimensional approach captures the wider view and offers clients the power to leverage resilience. Those with resilience:
- have the information in-hand to react more rapidly to extreme events that impact supply chains and ecosystems;
- assess expansion strategies based upon regulatory regime;
- know when to attack a new market or defend their corporate image;
- quickly assess the risks and opportunities by geographic region, industry segment;
- default_titlepredict the implications of a cyber security attack on industry segments and determine how goods and services will be effected;
- default_titletrack the Resilient Scores of undervalued companies on the S&P 500 or NASDAQ;
- default_titlecompare the state of resilience across national critical infrastructures using data from natural and/or man-made disasters; and
- default_titleaugment data from S&P, Bloomberg, E*TRADE or Thomson Reuters market reports with detailed resilience metrics to make more informed decisions.
Resilient delivers a robust set of data with the specific objective to provide its clients with more than a traditional data service. The firm spent over 5 years in R&D to develop a robust and unique approach to organizational resilience measurement. The firm has scoured the web for data sources that are very difficult to locate and not often indexed by traditional search engines. Resilient’s patent-pending methodology is the only constant as both technology and data evolve. The company was designed to make the revolutionary leap from traditional data service to actionable intelligence provider. Resilient systems search for the incremental piece of data. Our methodology is applied to validate that data from over 250 key performance indicators prior to publishing a Resilient Score. Each Score specifically states ‘Partial Scope’ or ‘Full Scope’ to reflect the confidence level.
With the Resilient Score, one can address questions such as:
- How robust are the global systems we rely on as we go about our lives?
- Are there weak links in the global supply chain?
- Where do we stand within your industry?
- How do our services rank in quality, effectiveness, and efficiency as compared to our competitors? Are our systems responsive?
- default_titleHow resilient is our organization to terrorism and natural disasters?
- default_titleHow resilient are we versus other global industries?
- default_titleWhich geographic regions are more resilient?
This directive is aimed at strengthening the security and resilience of the United States through systematic preparation for the threats that pose the greatest risk to the security of the Nation, including acts of terrorism, cyber attacks, pandemics, and catastrophic natural disasters. Our national preparedness is the shared responsibility of all levels of government, the private and nonprofit sectors, and individual citizens.
The one thing we know with certainty about the 21st century is that it will be volatile and uncertain. Any risk management strategy that depends on accurate prediction and response plans for specific scenarios is....well, risky. Resilience represents a capacity not only to prevent and protect, but also to preempt the impact of disruptions, creating the capacity to manage the “un” categories of events: unexpected, unpredictable -- and sometimes unstoppable.
Supply chains are backbones of the global economy. Their complexity and critical role have businesses and governments increasingly concerned about managing major disruptions. This calls for a better strategy around resilience to build agile, transparent and diversified systems.
