We work with an organization's risk, security, business continuity, crisis management, travel, global mobility, and EHS teams to achieve a holistic and strategic framework that captures cost savings, drives competitive advantages and protects reputations to adapt to challenges through better governance. Facilitating the adoption of the Continuous Risk Management Model (CRMM), we help create a corroborative, collaborative, adaptive approach across security, business continuity, emergency management, crisis management, EHS&S, supply and IT to protect people, sites, supply and information.
Achieving Agile Operational Awareness is a wholistic approach best accomplished in phases that meet the enterprise’s priorities:
We help organizations adopt an Agile Business Continuity (BC) method based on the principle of continuous improvement and the belief that the best way to prepare for a potential disruption is to exercise the capabilities needed to respond to it when it occurs. Organizations today are facing an extended period of perma-crisis. This VUCA world (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) will largely be driven by a new world order, climate change, resource scarcity, and significant technological advancements all at an escalating pace. It is imperative that we transform Business Continuity from a top-down compliance-oriented approach to an all-hands-on-deck continuous improvement approach. Process owners should have continuity as a mindset and a core skillset.
The Agile BC approach as offered by us is a starting point to achieve this goal and one that should be adapted and improved over time through community collaboration. It involves the use of short sprints or cycles to assess and manage risks, test and refine response plans, and implement continuous improvements to the business continuity management (BCM) program. By adopting an Agile approach to business continuity, organizations are better prepared to respond to disruptions and minimize their impact on operations and services, to heighten customer focus by ensuring deliverables to customers and clients, and to safeguard their long-term success.
