Events occur daily that threaten to impact the smooth running of
your business. Regardless of their severity, you have no control
over them. Yet you can control their significance to your
organisation, if you’ve anticipated and prepared for them
appropriately. As a senior executive/manager, you have a responsibility to minimise the impact of these events, to your
staff, your stakeholders and your customers.
All organisations share two
common characteristics. They’re powered by both processes and by
people. The success of your own Company rests on the continuous
exchange of information that can be acted upon in the right way
and at the right time by the right people. Disrupt that process
or peoples’ ability to communicate and your business faces a
problem that can quickly escalate out of control. Failure to
serve your market damages your reputation and creates a negative
image. That’s a problem that you can’t afford to ignore.
How do you address such a threat?
By recognising the risks and planning to minimise their impact on your business through good Business Continuity Management (BCM).
BCM training is essential. The first step in Business Continuity Management is to understand its principles, how they can be applied and the benifits this will bring to your organisation.
