BCM Program Design, Development & Implementation

ContinuityWorks can guide and support you as design, build, and establish a good business continuity program that’s right for your business, regardless of where you are in the process.

• Starting from Scratch?
• Trying to fix a program that is broken or has lapsed?
• Struggling with how to address new and growing regulatory compliance requirements?
• Striving toward a more prepared and self-empowered business culture?

Realistically speaking, all BC programs need at least a year of incubation... building, training, culture change... a quick fix program may give you extra momentum if you are already on your way, but expect to spend more time and energy if you are starting from scratch.

The first year is key to setting up a replicable planning and plan review process that can be sustained over time. Building the right team, embedding business continuity roles and responsibilities into the fabric of daily operations set the tone for positive culture change and cultivating a survival reflex that becomes a core value in your organization. You want to be a business where everyone matters and everyone contributes to business resiliency!

Can it be done in less time? Absolutely! But you do have to be willing to commit the resources. We have over 27 years of experience helping businesses streamline their approach to program implementation.

Every ContinuityWorks engagement is priced to accommodate client choices about the type of help they want and need to grow and establish a program that’s sustainable and the right fit for their business.

If you are on the fence about exactly how we can help you to meet your business mission for resiliency and preparedness, please feel to send us an email with your questions and we'll respond by email or set-up a fifteen minute, no cost / no obligation telephone consult at a time that's convenient.
