Organizational Absorption

Organizational Absorption is the capability of a company or other organization to accommodate unfavorable developments or disadvantageous market trends through the use of defensive techniques such as contingency savings funds, hedged investments, or emergency lines of credit. Organizational absorption differs from organizational agility in that the emphasis is on defensive measures rather than proactive solutions.[1]
