How does Covid19 test your organisational resilience?

How Covid19 makes impacts on leadership,organisational genes & decision-making

in for-profit & non-profit organisations in Vietnam 

Organisational resilience in Covid19 is the ability of the whole organisation to bounce back from Covid19 - affected status quo into the better shape pre - Covid or post - Covid.

Everyone talks about organisational resilience. However, what it really is & how to achieve it are still in question for many leaders, stakeholders, decision makers & decision takers. in collaboration with RespectVN, a local manpower & organisational development initiative, developed a framework of four organisational profiles during Covid19. 


They are organisations in their (i) Fear Zones; (ii) Learning Zones; (iii) Resilient Zones; and (iv) Value-aligned Zones. 


We found out that the four zones can be featured by at least four models that can be named & captured in creative comics for easy recognition & comparison.


This work is complete based on in-depth & multiple conversations with 200 respondents from 50 for-profit & non-profit organisations across Vietnam. On average 4 individuals holding different positions in an organisation participated from 2 to 5 times of engagement (concept clarity interview, key document review, perception gap review, statement verification) with us.
