BCM goes beyond operations

Managing risk entails identifying, evaluating, prioritizing, and mitigating (where feasible), factors and circumstances that may turn out badly. Business continuity deals with potential effects, impacts, and consequences when they do.

Business Continuity Management (BCM) approaches both risk and its realization, coordinating and unifying planning and actions. A formal way of saying this is that BCM is a holistic management process with a framework to confer organizational resilience. Either way, the BCM viewpoint is to carry on business essentials and minimize effects on customers and suppliers.

BCM goes beyond operations.

The BCM approach extends to all critically important factors and activities, such as reputation and brand – any area that sustains value while the organization recovers from an adverse event.

First, gain some height with us and look down

First, gain some height with us and look down at your business or organization –

its milieu, processes, technology, facilities, personnel, sources and resources.

What could happen to disrupt things?

Maybe do a SWOT analysis, just to keep track. You will probably find plenty of threats and vulnerabilities, in various sizes and likelihoods. Any and all are risks, but some combine severity and likelihood strongly, pointing themselves out for your attention. Others not so much, but worth recognizing.

Got risks? What to do?

Two things, really, now, before something happens. Reduce the risks, most severe first, if you can, and be prepared to respond to minimize loss and disruption if the threat comes calling.

That’s easy to say, but threats and risks can be multiple and complicated. A management process to help assure organizational resilience can be your defense. The next blog sketches an overall process to manage business continuity, from risk to recovery.

What has changed in emergency planning, risk management, and business continuity?

What has changed in emergency planning, risk management, and business continuity?

Not the basics, but all three are substantially evolved, elaborated, and refined. (Uh oh, I read that as complicated, expensive, time taking, and slowing production…  Should I?)

We suggest instead that you would be working to assure personal and business survivability and to gain the comfort of having things under control, and likely to stay that way with due attention. Sure, much of life and business is luck, but to be lucky, a business needs to be around.Let’s have at it, while nothing has happened – yet. Next blog talks about what we can do before something does happen. After that, we will talk about after.

Until then relax with the thought of a hot water leak on the top floor, a smoky fire in a transformer space, or a live shooter. ‘Back shortly.

Want to get up to date?

Emergency planning, risk management, and business continuity have grown into powerful, valuable, and entirely practical, areas of knowledge, skill, execution, and experience.

Organizations have long protected against losing people, facilities, resources, and business activity due to material, organizational and social/political disasters, mishaps and interruptions – at least the newsworthy ones. Many executives, managers, and staff provide alternative facilities, personnel, materials and equipment, insurance coverages, and communications for continuity of operations.

What could possibly be new in this clearly common sense area?

Quite a bit, actually, and most all of it deliberate, businesslike, and efficient in terms of practical experiences, hazards, and tradeoffs.

Want to get up to date? Join with us for several content filled hours about how emergency planning, risk management, and business continuity have matured to join into the regular flow of planned and budgeted business programs and projects in this webinar: What is the difference? Emergency Planning, Risk Management and Business Continuity.
