Abstract/Summary Modern industry is facing increasing internal and external complexity, performance pressures and technological and social change. In the last decade, much has been written about organisational resilience being an important attribute needed by industry to successfully manage the risks associated with modern industrial systems. To date, most of the resilience literature focuses on defining and describing the concept, with some articles providing insight into how organisations might measure, assess and build resilience in practice. There seems to be little focus on industry practitioners’ perspectives on organisational resilience. To address this gap we surveyed industry practitioners from both Australian and International companies to obtain their perceptions of organisational resilience. Our results show that most survey respondents thought that building organisational resilience is very important but their companies were not ‘very resilient’ because more needs to be done to help practitioners understand resilience and how to build it within industry.
