About this title


In nature, DNA, the building block of all life, determines whether an organism will grow into a sleek racehorse, a sturdy Shetland pony, or a lumbering dinosaur; whether a group of cells will multiply into a healthy heart or one that kills its owner. In much the same way, an organization's DNA will determine whether it evolves into a powerhouse or a dying company.

An organization, like a living creature, consists of many interdependent parts: people, relationships, historical events, past and present decisions, life-sustaining functions, and physical, financial and intellectual resources. A change in any one of these will affect all of the others, for better or worse, even though the effect may not be apparent for months or even years.

The DNA of the Resilient Organization shows managers and leaders how to embed resilience into their organization's DNA. It gives the tools for creating a results-oriented strategic plan, a sturdy infrastructure, and star-producing talent development using examples from best-in-class companies. It shows how to create the Wonder Glue of Trust, Confidence, and Motivation that makes companies become and stay successful despite challenges and crises.

About the Author:

Sandra A. Suran's specialty is helping organizations to change and to grow from solo practitioners to very large entities. Sandra's 30-year background in consulting and auditing provide her with the broad, extensive experience and skills necessary to lead and assist with complex, people-focused change projects that include:
1) strategic and operations planning,

2) organization structure alternatives,

3) operations and management processes and

4) financial and organizational information needs of internal and external stakeholders.
Sandra has experience working with a variety of industries including high-tech companies, health care, government, construction, education institutions, service-centered organizations, manufacturing and distribution organizations, and financial institutions. For example, she has led the development and facilitated the implementation of over 80 comprehensive organizational strategic plans, including plans for multiple-entity collaborations. She has coordinated the planning and supervised the implementation of a similar number of organizational restructurings to accomplish increased responsiveness to stakeholders and improved effectiveness for private, governmental and not-for-profit entities.
Prior to founding The Suran Group in 1990, Sandra was founder and audit and consulting partner of one of Portland's largest accounting and consulting firms, Suran & Company, CPAs, which merged with KPMG Peat Marwick in 1985. She subsequently became an audit and consulting partner with KPMG, serving on the national Middle Market steering committee. Sandra's respected understanding of business led the State of Oregon to hire her to develop a strategic plan for small business in Oregon and to lead the design and implementation of small business programs for the State.
Sandra is a frequent writer and speaker on such topics as effectively accomplishing change, strategic and operations planning, alliances, Board relationships, future trends, managing change, and entrepreneurial economics.
