In support of Resilience Day, the Transportation System Resilience Section will be holding a virtual “tabletop” exercise on Resilience/Business Continuity Leadership Characteristics. The tabletop exercise will expand the current state of knowledge regarding human factors in the resilience area and will look at the characteristics and considerations that leaders should have (or develop) to ensure quick and effective responses in highly disruptive situations. The results of the exercise will be shared with all participants and will be presented and discussed at a session during Resilience Day.

We ask that, if this is of interest, you complete the survey via the link below before December 10. The survey for this exercise will take about 30 minutes to complete. The survey questions focus on the respondent’s company strategies, actions and resulting effects in the face of disruptions. Our goal is to obtain at least 100 responses. Survey link:
