"A discussion on the underlying trade-offs in achieving organizational resilience"

In past decades, many natural disasters and social crises have directed the attention of many scholars and practitioners towards organizational resilience. The increasing interest has led to many reviews and re-conceptualizations of this construct to achieve clarity on its conceptualization. While such discussions are paramount for a rigorous future research, a critical view of organizational resilience seems to be left out of the conversation. Organizational resilience does not come for free, and a structured perspective is necessary for its accurate investigation as well as its successful implementation. In this research-in-progress seminar, I illustrate and discuss three underlying trade-offs: 1) Buffering vs. adaptation, 2) Efficiency vs. resilience, 3) System resilience vs. component resilience. The first trade-off directs our attention towards equifinality in achieving organizational resilience through two different sets of mechanisms. However, in certain cases, getting engaged in both simultaneously may turn out to be costly and ineffective. Meanwhile, the other two trade-offs highlight the potentially undesirable consequences of achieving organizational resilience. 

Speaker Intro: Ekin Ilseven, PhD Candidate at INSEAD.
