    Abstract Recently, the concept of resilience has gained new momentum in organization studies.It is held to be a very promising concept to explain how organizations can survive andthrive amidst adversity or turbulence. However, findings from an earlier review aboutresilience in the organizational and business context show that, although empirical re-search on the concept has increased, there is still a need for more clarity in terms ofits measurement. The aim of this paper is to present a systematic review of the orga-nizational resilience construct that covers both conceptual and operational issues. Wediscuss why researchers criticize resilience for being fuzzy and move on to identify andanalyse existing literature under the lens of construct development and taxonomies.With this study, we aim to point out conceptual problems for future researchers toaddress conceptual clarity and to develop a clearer, more parsimonious concept. Weconclude with a suggestion about future measurement.
