What is the value of business continuity? Sure if you have a crisis and the world starts collapsing around you then there could be some benefit – having a plan is place would help you work through the worst of the disruption and continue to operate in as normal a way as possible. But what if you don’t have a crisis, what if your business is ticking along just fine, is there any value to business continuity then? Is there a return on investment?
That is the theme for Business Continuity Awareness Week 2016, as selected by those working in the profession when asked for their ideas following BCAW2015.
Perhaps your insurance premiums have been reduced? Maybe you’ve been getting more business coming your way because you’re seen as a reliable customer? Or possibly through all your BC planning you have discovered some inefficiencies within your organisation that could be removed and therefore save you money?
There are many ways that investing in BC can prove to be a good investment, so if you have other suggestions then please do get in touch by emailing Andrew Scott at the Business Continuity Institute Central Office. If you would like to write a blog, host a webinar, publish a paper or support BCAW in any other way then also get in touch. The more resources we have, the more we are able to raise awareness of the importance of BC.
BCAW2016 takes place between the 16th and 20th May 2016.
