i am editing the /Human Performance/ inugural special issue on 
_measurement in the organizational sciences_ and there are two 
resilience-related papers the may be germane to this discussion:

1.  Cheng et al., "Understanding how resilience is measured in the 
organizational sciences


2.  Teng et al., "Capturing resilience in context: Development and 
validation of a situational judgment test of resilience"

hope this is helpful?
