Posted by Catherine Bendell on 24th Jan 2017

A very successful event was held on Wednesday 8th February 2017 in conjunction with the Open University where Dr Elmar Kutsch, Senior Lecturer in Risk Management at the Cranfield School of Management presented his research into Organisational Resilience with APM members and guests at the Open University in Milton Keynes. The research investigated the effect of two differing approaches to the management of projects.


• A Rule-based Approach
• A Mindfulness Approach

In a stimulating and thought provoking presentation Dr Kutsch described:

• The benefits and problems of the two approaches
• How, when difficult situations occur, organisations tend to change their approach from Rule-Based to Mindfulness.
• How hybrid approaches develop in organisations
