​The ROI of building resilience into business as usual

The tried, tested and not always successful counter argument goes like this. If it seems like a lot of time, effort and expenditure to adopt business continuity practices, the cost of these will be as nothing compared to the cost of enduring a catastrophe and its aftermath without a plan.

Mobile, social, cognitive and the Internet of Things - technologies like these are reshaping business, improving client engagement and making employees more productive, flexible, and responsive. Our growing reliance on 24/7 availability also puts us more at risk every day and increases the impacts of an outage.

What is the return on investment of business continuity? How do you justify to top management any investment in business continuity? It's a tough question. If a disruption does occur, then clearly having a business continuity plan will demonstrate significant value, as it will help you manage through the disruption. But what if a disruption hasn’t occurred?

Resilience professionals around the world… you are a victim of your own success! If your business is resilient (whether by effective planning or pure luck!) you will find that it becomes increasingly difficult to capture the imagination (and attention) of your boardroom.

This year’s ​Business Continuity Awareness Week theme got me thinking about what return on investment means to me. The question of what ​business continuity is worth to an organization has been around for at least as long as I have been practising and probably longer.

Organisations may well see an immediate short term return on investment if they face an early disruption and the business continuity plan comes through. Many teams would see this as a result, and be happy. However, this kind of result may well be what we are looking for in a plan, but in my view simple recovery is a superficial return, and not where the real added value lies.

As a local authority our approach to business continuity is a little different; 1) because we have a statutory duty to do it and 2) because we don’t tend to focus on money and profit in the same way a private company would – but that’s not to say that we don’t still get a return on our BC investments.

“What’s the ROI on that?” is one of the most common questions management ask when evaluating business programmes and projects. When it comes to business continuity programmes, the answer is often “Well, there’s not really any ROI unless you experience a major disaster, and we haven’t experienced one yet.”

Ensuring greater resilience in your supply chains creates a greater value for money proposition than a supply chain that is fragile, and frequently creates disruptions to your business. Understanding exactly what you are paying for in terms of resilience, and using that knowledge to create appropriate levels of investment in supply chain resilience will give you a competitive advantage.

I have been involved in disaster business resilience since the 1980's. In that time, I’ve seen it go through the phases of disaster recovery, ​business continuity and now business resilience. Y2K (remember that?!) gave it a major boost – then nothing considerable happened. Terror campaigns in the UK and USA then the pandemic 'flu scare in 2006-7 also kept it in the C-suite's mind.

Let’s be honest, we all get annoyed at the constant challenge to justify our existence. I don’t hold with the commentators who say that ​business continuity is always a cost centre, insurance buy or grudge purchase. It makes me mad... but that’s not difficult.

What if your ​business continuity planning (BCP) could actually reduce ongoing costs rather than be just an expensive insurance policy? The key to realizing ongoing value from your BCP, not to mention making a strong case for BCP investment, is to treat it as a means to achieve day-to-day resiliency regardless of whether you ever experience a disaster.

Return on investment… a dilemma for business continuity practitioners. How to demonstrate the value of something that is designed for events which (hopefully) never occur? How to access, then budget, resources, organizational importance and leadership, as this ROI is potentially a part of the 'beauty contest' with resource competing disciplines?

This year’s theme for Business Continuity Awareness Week is 'return on investment'. As someone who has worked in business continuity in both the public and private sector for over six years I am seeing that the investment in building robust, easy to use and readily available business continuity plans is essential, but nowhere more so than throughout the world of education in the United Kingdom.

If you’re an SME, you’re busy making money and keeping daily business under control. The last thing you need is another task, creating something that you may never need to use. But there are many immediate benefits and important reasons for creating a business continuity plan (BCP).

The Business Continuity Institute's recent Horizon Scan Report identifies that cyber attacks are still perceived as the top threat by businesses. Also within the top 10 is concern about supply chain disruption, especially as they are becoming increasingly complex and often transgress international borders. So how does BC help with these very real issues for businesses operating today?

One of the best ways to attain senior management buy-in, for any project, is a return on investment (ROI) analysis. The same is true for any business continuity management program implementation. Just one problem. With the exception of financial institutions, it is very difficult to show ROI in financial terms (which executives like)

Business continuity is more than just an overhead, it is a good investment and can make the difference to post-disruption survival. It can also make a huge difference to the attitudes of our employees, our customers and even our competitors.
