The S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation defines resiliency as the capacity of an organization to respond effectively to change, to adapt successfully to new and unforeseen conditions and circumstances – and to seize opportunity. The Foundation is committed to building the resiliency of its grantees.
In 2015, the Foundation commissioned Monitor Institute to conduct a comprehensive literature review on the topic, the results of which are preserved for archival purposes in this bibliography. In 2020, the Foundation published new research on resiliency, including an updated list of resources; see Resiliency Guide, Version 5.0 for that content.
