First, it’s important to define the scope of business continuity. A complete program covers the Information Technology systems, and then you’ll need to define the business departmental recovery plans. And administrating the entire process is crisis management.
All organizations have a fiduciary and moral responsibility to its stakeholders (employees, customers, owners/shareholders, etc.) to develop and maintain a BCM plan, It provides the action steps your team needs to keep business performing at a predefined operational level when a disaster occurs. The best BCM plan functions as a flexible support guide so tasks are not overlooked in the stress of a recovery effort, especially during the initial hours of an event. Also, the plan helps to guide your organization back to “normal operations” in an orderly manner.
As a business continuity professional for over 25 years, I have managed dozens of actual crisis events and I have found that the key to a successful BCM program is to develop a foundational strategy that is based on actual experience and not theory.
