Business Continuity: Get Real, Get Right, Get Results
Date: October 24, 3:00 PM CEST
Length: 60 minutes
In some organizations, Business Continuity is the best-kept secret. Unless you’re program is audited or your CEO sees the value, the common frustrations with BC are that it lacks executive support, it’s seen as a project, there’s minimal career trajectory, the process takes too long to deliver value, the terminology is unclear, there’s not enough money or budget to support it, etc. etc. etc.
What is changing in our world that we need to consider? What human factors should we include to “design with our stakeholders and not for our stakeholders”? How do we get the results we need to support our organizations and bring satisfaction to our roles?
In this session, we will discuss the current landscape of our world and how it is rapidly changing. We will also explore a global retailer case study and how to navigate competing interests and factors in behavioral changes.
The webinar will cover:
- Express the current state of our global environment and assess paths to move forward
- Explain the principles of design thinking and how they apply to business continuity
- Recognize opportunities to design for behavioral changes
