About Us

Resilient Organisations (ResOrgs) is a public-good research programme based in New Zealand.  We have been researching what makes organisations resilient to crises since 2004.

ResOrgs is a collaboration between top New Zealand research universities, particularly the University of Canterbury and the University of Auckland.  We are funded by the Natural Hazards Research Platform and supported by a diverse group of industry partners and advisors.

We are a multi-disciplinary team of over 35 researchers, representing a synthesis of engineering, science and business leadership aimed at transforming organisations so they can successfully survive major disruptions, avoid chronic dysfunction, build robust partnerships, and prosper.
