Business as usual

Back

Being prepared for an emergency is an essential part of running a large organization. What’s more, plans need to be regularly reviewed as team members change and the organization grows.

The responsibility for good BCM ultimately falls on the shoulders of people at the top of an organization and we’ve found, by working closely with countless organizations, effective BCM happens when at least one individual at board level is appointed to be responsible for co-ordinating the BCM capability.

Senior team leaders also need to be appointed and trained to ensure plans are carried out correctly if an emergency situation were to break out. All those who are appointed to the BCM capability in your organization will need to meet on a regular basis, to keep plans current.
