On October 7th, 2020 Martin Gierczak presented at the Continuity & Resiliency Today virtual conference.
Key highlights from the presentation included:
The development of Interactive Business Continuity Plans (iBCP): Build dashboards in Microsoft PowerBI with Business Impact Analysis (BIA) data to enable organisations “Tell their Continuity story” and to support risk-mitigating projects that can further drive organisational resiliency.
The Agile Resiliency Project Management Framework: Develop scenarios where key stakeholders can engage in conversation to improve your organisations ability to adapt if a scenario where to occur. Due to the pandemic, scenarios specifically related to Covid-19 impacts can be developed to assist in ideating for process changes. You can download our "How to" guide in developing scenarios and facilitating your own Agile user-story tabletops.
Data driven situational incident & crisis management tools: From PowerBI contact tracing dashboards, Google crisis map overlays, Tweetdecks to PowerBI dashboards that display employee locations with hydro outage overlays.
Bringing it all together - Proposed Program Structure: Embedding processes within your existing Business Continuity Management program such as Health & Safety, Analytics, Process Improvement, Internal and External Communication strategies, etc. to improve organisational resiliency.
