In four sections, it broadens participation of the field to include policy and organization studies, and articulates aspects of resilience beyond initial definitions. Policy and Organization explores public policy and organizational aspects of resilience and how they aid or inhibit preparation and restoration. Models and Measures addresses thoughts on ways to measure resilience and model systems to detect desirable, and undesirable, results. Elements and Traits examines features of systems and how they affect the ability to prepare for and recover from significant challenges. Applications and Implications examines how resilience plays out in the living laboratory of real-world operations.
