Our sponsor Sungard Availability Services have some interesting observations on how resilience is a major byword at this years World Cup, both on and off the pitch. Many managers, pundits and players have mentioned how resilience plays a major part in knockout competions, where matchs come thick and fast and recovery times are short.
