Webinar: Novel Coronavirus: Crisis Management & Infectious Disease & Pandemic Planning
The current novel coronavirus (2019nCov) outbreak has been spreading across the globe infecting thousands of people in dozens of countries. This has created anxiety around the globe, affected company supply chains and caused The World Health Organization to enact the Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) designation for only the sixth time since 2005. What should your company be doing now to prepare?
This webinar looks at this emerging crisis from two vantage points: Crisis Management & Infectious Disease & Pandemic Planning. Does your organization have the right processes in place to get the situational awareness you need to make decisions? Is there a clear process and team in place assess the information and to make a decision to activate your crisis management team?
Do you have a pandemic plan and if so, when was it last revised? If not, you need one. Stop and take a moment to rethink this plan and how it can be more helpful in more disease situations, not just the “once-in-a-blue-moon” event such as a global pandemic. What if you had a cases of measles in your call center? That would be a true crisis and it is only happening to you.
There is a more useful way to view this important document – as an “all-purpose” disease plan rather than just a global pandemic guide. Consider making an infectious disease and pandemic guide.
BRMA January 2017 Meeting
What is the ROI of Business Continuity? Reframe the conversation to talk about value.
You often hear phrases like “return on investment” (ROI) or “value proposition” when groups or organizations attempt to demonstrate the value of a particular activity. “Is it good for us?” “Is it worth the investment?” and “Should we continue to fund the endeavor?” are all valid and important questions.
This talk peels back the question of ROI and attempts to answer the value proposition question of business continuity. The goal is to broaden the conversation. Instead of talking about how much money business continuity efforts will save the company, we will focus on why the Bad Thing happened. By clearly understanding the whys of business continuity, you can make your organization more resilient and truly demonstrate value. Download the slides to enter into this important conversation.
