The session will explore the challenges engineers face in times of unprecedented change, with economic, geopolitical, climate and technological factors all converging to create a highly volatile business environment. Resilience is a key factor in dealing with this volatility and uncertainty, and the discussion will cover different ways that engineering organisations can build resilience, whether that be in physical infrastructure, operational processes or the skills embedded within an organisation.
Running from 2PM (UK time) on Wednesday May 25th the session, which is supported by RS Components, will bring together a mix of senior engineers and academics to investigate this highly relevant topic.
Key discussion areas / agenda:
- Resilience best practice
• Key areas of investment
• The importance of innovation
• Building a resilient workforce
• Addressing the productivity gap
• Cross-sector resilience lessons
