This course is based on the Resilience in a Box programme, and was developed in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation and UPS. Resilience in a Box is based on best practices and designed to educate newcomers on business resilience. Small businesses are both highly vulnerable and can be without adequate resources to focus on preparedness actions. These resources will guide companies toward addressing preparedness issues while building in flexibility to handle potential business interruptions.
Concretely speaking, this course is divided across four modules which help small business owners and entrepreneurs identify why businesses fail, the kinds of hazards their business might face, the effects of these hazards, and how to create a resilience plan based on their business' critical assets.
