Challenging, complex and uncertain environments are now the norm.  In these rapidly changing environments, successful organizations have developed solid financial foundations, clearly-defined strategic goals, robust planning scenarios, early warning systems, engaged staff and adaptable decision-making practices.  This interactive and independent study workshop will provide essential tools for building financial resiliency to equip your organizations to withstand acute shocks and chronic stresses, while maintaining and improving essential services, and recovering quickly and effectively.
