I am delighted to announce that my book, ‘Building Anti-Fragile Organisations; Risk, Opportunity and Governance in a Turbulent World’ is now on sale!
The recent world crises should have taught us one thing; we can no longer just focus on organisational efficiency and effectiveness. For them to survive and flourish, we should design and manage our organisations to become stronger from being stressed, not just be robust against stress, since there is no level of robustness that is `safe enough`. This property, borrowed from biology, has been labelled by Nasem Taleb as Anti-Fragility. As well as being a new way of thinking about mitigating risk, Anti-Fragility also encompasses flexibility, agility and the exploitation of opportunities.
Professor Bendell explains how applying this concept to the development and management of organisations, services and products, allows us to identify the characteristics of these that will not only mitigate against the realisation of hazards, but will enable growth in protection, strength and Anti-Fragility over time.
This book links theory and practice through the discussion of specific private and public sector cases. It will be of value to practising managers and particularly to organisational change, quality management, organisational excellence, risk and finance specialists, as well as to business students.
I hope you enjoy the book and would love to hear what you think…
Professor Tony Bendell
