At a time when we face frequent natural disasters and political and cyber events that can impact our ability to conduct business, business continuity management (BCM) becomes more critical. Complex organisations and supply chains, along with lean management, has stretched efficiency at many organisations, but has taken away some of the cushion of conducting business when an interruption occurs. Learn how your company can re-examine its BCM governance and practices to improve its resilience.

Key Learnings

  • Assessing your current business continuity programmes
  • Governance structures that work for BCM
