In this article, some general conceptual issues regarding the relevance of antifragility for sustainable development and organizational sustainability are developed. This is done against the background of the general research hypothesis which is the basis for future research, requiring a paradigm shift from resilience of systems and organizations towards antifragility: Antifragility is the basis of intra- and intergenerational sustainability as well as long-term survival. More is needed than resilience, which rather focuses on the capacity and capability to recover from different shocks. Sustainability strategies should focus on the prevention or elimination of unsustainable activities or fragilities, replacing them, when necessary, with less unsustainable activities. This is a first step in enabling organizations or systems to handle unexpected future events, potentially threatening their existence.

W niniejszym artykule opisano kluczowe założenia koncepcyjne dotyczące znaczenia antykruchości dla zrównoważonego rozwoju oraz podtrzymywalności organizacyjnej. Autor oparł się na podstawie dla ogólnej hipotezy badawczej stanowiącej fundament dla dalszych badań, wymagającej przesunięcia paradygmatu z odporności systemów i organizacji w kierunku antykruchości: Antykruchość to podstawa podtrzymywalności wewnątrz- i międzypokoleniowej, a także przetrwania w długim okresie. Potrzeba więcej aniżeli tylko odporności, która punkt ciężkości kładzie na możliwościach, potencjale i zdolnościach do powrotu do normalności po różnego rodzaju szokach. Strategie podtrzymywalności i zrównoważonego rozwoju powinny koncentrować się na zapobieganiu lub eliminacji niezrównoważonych działań czy kruchości, zastępując je, gdy to konieczne, mniej niezrównoważonymi działaniami. Stanowi to pierwszy krok umożliwiający organizacjom bądź systemom radzenie sobie w obliczu nieprzewidzianych przyszłym zdarzeń, zagrażających potencjalnie ich istnieniu…
