Most businesses have near zero tolerance for service outages and disruptions, regardless of the cause. How do Business Continuity professionals demonstrate a positive ROI for applications while meeting always-on expectations? In an operationally always-on world, business communications must be real-time with rapid response to outages to keep your business running. To achieve this level of Operational Resiliency, you must implement automated communications that eliminate breakdown during a crisis event or disruption. Join this webinar to learn about the latest technologies that you can use today to automate communications for real-time incident and crisis management, regardless of the channel. Are you ready to respond to your next disruption?
There are crises and then there are reputation train wrecks. In the former, your organisation is thrown into a period of chaos that may last days, weeks or months. Stakes and costs are high, but by quickly demonstrating ownership, integrity, genuine stakeholder concern and swift action, your chance of recovering and even enhancing your organisation’s reputation is strong. Think Johnson and Johnson’s Tylenol crisis.
In the latter on the other hand, slow response, lack of responsibility, blame and insensitivity to stakeholders’ perceptions will quickly propel your organisation into a reputation train wreck that may damage and possibly destroy it forever. Think BP, Volkswagen and FIFA.
Indeed bad management and communication can turn a crisis into a reputation train wreck and only principled-based organisations with effective crisis leadership and preparedness can weather the storm and even emerge from it stronger. In this webinar, you will:
- Gain some fundamental best practice insight on how prepare for crises and prevent a reputation train wreck
- Learn real-world response strategies to protect your credibility and retain stakeholder trust even in the most adverse circumstances
Traditional project management approaches focus on measuring performance in terms of respecting time and cost estimates. Those measures confirm performance after the fact and do not address the main driver of project success: engaged high-performing teams.
This webinar, co-hosted by Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond, will present the link between continuously engaged teams, superior performance and successful high value project delivery, as well as explain how agile values, principles and tools can help build and develop continuously engaged, high-performing project teams.
Charlotte and Claude will also present and demonstrate, using real project data, a simple 3-step approach, based on agile techniques and inspired by their own experiences in projects, that will help you to quickly mobilize your teams (any types of teams, project-oriented or production-oriented) and keep them engaged and high-performing.
Those who attend the webinar will be given access to a pdf copy of the presentation slides as well as to a copy of an Excel template that can be used as a support tool to monitor and improve team engagement.

Due to the recent economic climate, never before have we witnessed the current level of pressure on businesses to protect customers, employees and the business, covering all sides of the organization to make it more resilient. In general, the motivational factor for preventing loss of business assets and ability to operate is financial, and requires that you improve your business not just protect it.
Many companies struggle and over spend because they decide to throw money and resources at the problem and treat each area of the business as a silo. By taking this approach, the opportunity for an incident is very high and usually does happen. The opportunity for organizations is to recognize a single integrated approach that will address all areas.
Your BCMS investment should not be a standalone document or simply a cost to your operations. Instead, a strong BCMS supports business operational value.
You can show an immediate ROI when resiliency and reliability are weaved throughout the design of a system or process instead of adding a business continuity plan as solely a disaster element. In this webinar, John DiMaria AMBCI will discuss multipurpose solutions that increase both reliability and functionality that not only protect your business but improve it.
The theme for Business Continuity Awareness Week 2016 is return on investment, a theme design to highlight the value of business continuity. During the week, Business Continuity Institute will be publishing a new paper highlighting what some of those returns are. These are returns that go beyond the obvious benefit of BC when disaster occurs, but rather they are returns that do not require the activation of the BC plan. Join Patrick Alcantara DBCI and Andrew Scott CBCI as they present some of the findings from this research.
Efficiencies and reduced investment costs associated with business continuity are typically measured, and measurable, during and after an incident. However significant efficiencies in time, money and resource can be gained at the outset by adopting an approach that focuses on what is really critical, optimises existing capabilities and facilitates collaboration across different risk management disciplines. During this webinar, we will aim to show how a strategic, risk-based approach to Business Continuity can create efficiencies for the organisation both in terms of time and financial investment.
There is a saying that "the cobbler's children are the last to get shoes". As BCM professionals we ensure that other business functions continue to have the tools to do their jobs whilst we go without. Yet failures in resilience cost organisations dearly – both in direct costs and as the result of reputational impact. But with increasingly complex and integrated systems, monitoring of risk mitigation and response can be costly. Incidents affecting business and IT operations are daily occurrences, often escalating into critical events, without proper management and communications. How can we improve efficiency and provision whilst staying within financial constraints? This webinar, explores these topics.
A resilient organization is adaptive, agile and robust – harnessing experience and embracing opportunity to pass the test of time. Does your business continuity strategy support you in achieving this? David Hitchen will look at the initial value from implementing business continuity - and explore the longer term benefits of a strategy that supports your organization in being truly resilient.
Risk and business continuity management are often regarded as 'grudge' compliance purchases or appointments – there are many truths in this negative feeling and perception for a lot of organisations. This presentation will look at how we should approach risk and business continuity management to ensure it adds to the overall business resilience of our organisations and will unpack the value of resiliency.
