Resilience in organizations can be seen as the ability to absorb changes in and outside of the organizational context and still persist. Organizations, both small and large, are increasingly interested in how to become resilient and stay resilient through tough situations. This study focuses on the differences in resilience between small and large organizations, after fundamental aspects are pointed out and discussed. To do so, organization size, the adaptive cycle and factors of resilience are first discussed. Then, a case study is discussed on a small and a large organization within the media streaming domain, to find and discuss fundamental factors of resilience within small and large organizations. Finally, a deep discussion of the findings is provided, as well as instructions for future work in the field of resilience.
