Posted | Category: BRMConnect | Contributed

Representing IT Chapter, Svetlana Sidenko and Nataliya Khylenko gave to the BRM community a plethora of valuable tools during their session “The Resilience Revolution: The Importance of Cultivating Business Resilience through the Strategic Role of a BRM.”

During their session at the BRMConnect 2023 conference in Portland, OR, they introduced attendees to the concept of organizational importance. But they didn’t stop there, they went on to articulate why resilience is necessary for organizational survival in today’s high-paced business environment, and how BRMs can lead the charge.

“With resilience, organizations can adapt to changes and navigate through unexpected obstacles without damaging their operations, reputation, or financial stability.”
