Serving the Business Continuity lifecycle

In a time when superior customer service, brand reputation and operational efficiency are arguably the most critical drivers to profitability, your ability to avoid business disruption through unforeseen and uncontrollable events becomes imperative. Loss of critical systems directly affects your ability to allocate, replenish and price stock or maintain inventories. Disruption in your distribution channel impacts on your transportation, warehousing and supply chain. As a result, failure to serve your market damages your reputation and creates a negative image.

Different company leaders consider varying responses to such threats. Some ‘do nothing’, hardly an acceptable, not to mention sensible, strategy. Others divert their ‘mission critical’ activities to another organisation but give no thought to due diligence or even to enforcing and testing the arrangement through service level agreements. Insurance might seem an appropriate response to some, but only provides financial recompense when a loss occurs. It doesn’t protect your market share or reputation.

Business Continuity Management (BCM) is the only truly effective means of ensuring your Company’s resilience to disruption of critical business processes and systems. Understanding the nature of these activities, their interdependencies and likely points of failure enables you to formulate a plan that can be executed the moment a potentially damaging event threatens your business.

We provide a customer-focused consultancy service throughout each of the six stages below of the BCM lifecycle.
