In an environment characterized by increasing complexity and uncertainty, and faced by a never-ending barrage of change and disruption, management is continuously looking for new coping-strategies. One set of new strategies emphasizes strengths and robustness rather than weakness and failure, and with this change of perspective resilience has entered the vocabulary of a growing number of academic traditions (Dahlberg, 2015). The term has also become popular outside of academia, and a Google Ngram search shows almost 300% increase, from 1980 to 2007, in publications in English where “resilience” occurs (https://books.google.com/ngrams).
