BRIEFING: CREATING OPPORTUNITIES FROM EXTERNAL SHOCKS

External shocks can create conflicts and tensions within international CSOs, but can also be opportunities to strengthen organisational effectiveness and resilience. New research suggests that there are three key elements of organisational culture that make the difference between ICSOs that create opportunities out of shocks, and those that face crises.

The findings are based on recent work with a wide range of ICSOs by Baobab associate¬†Alan Fowler and colleagues, and are summarised in the attached briefing note “Improving your Organisational Resilience – Taking a Path Less Travelled”.
