Business Continuity Policy
A Business Continuity Management Programme needs to be structured, to achieve compliance or certification. Everybody should know what the Business Continuity Policy is, the direction of the Programme and what the organization is trying to achieve.
When the intention of the programme is clear it is much easier to measure whether or not it has been delivered.
The objective of any Business Continuity Management Programme should be how to continue to deliver core services, stay strong and survive the tough challenges that are ahead. Structure is important to communicate organizational intent to others and to learn going forward.
Compliance, Certification, Business Continuity Policy and Communication – Paul Kudray discusses the importance of a structured approach to Business Continuity Management and recording what you’re trying to achieve.
Feedback from BCP Builder Community on this video has been:
- Business Continuity documentation is important to train stakeholders and maintain key information needed during a crisis. However, I believe the Business Continuity profession often puts too much emphasis on completing plans and not enough on defining the desired outcome.
- Good documentation is just one of many tools needed to really integrate resilience into the culture of a company.
