Exercising & Testing for Corporations: Design, Delivery and Evaluation

Join me Thursday, January 19/23 at 1pm EST on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel!

Exercising (and testing) our disaster, crisis, and business continuity plans, is important if we want our organization’s and our colleagues to respond effectively and efficiently to crisis and disaster situations.

I talk with globally recognized crisis management and business continuity specialist, Robert Burton. Rob will walk us through his proven methodology of how to plan and execute effective tests and exercises.

We touch on:

1. Pre-exercise planning,

2. Exercise and scenario design,

3. Final logistics,

4. Exercise delivery and evaluation,

5. Post exercise activities (AAR and summary video),

6. A few stories (how exercises can go wrong, a good way to end an exercise and war brings home the seriousness of not preparing).

It’s a great chat and a great way to help bring your exercises to a new level. Enjoy!

It’s a very interesting talk with some new perspectives on Supply Chain Management and Resilience. Enjoy!

Bus. Continuity Mgmt.: A Guide to Org. Resilience and ISO 22301

Join me May 19, 2022 at 1pm EST!

Sometimes the size and scale of Business Continuity Management (BCM) can be intimidating – to people in our own industry and to those trying to understand the industry. I speak with noted expert and author of ‘Business Continuity Management: A Practical Guide to Organizational Resilience and ISO 22301’, James Crask.

For this episode we talk about:

1. Defining resilience,

2, What can be learned from international standards (the benefits and the pitfalls),

3. Lessons for the BCM and resilience industries from COVID19,

4. Establishing governance in BCM and Resilience,

5. Writing plans and procedures (and what to do with the ‘fluff’), and

6. Exercising our plans – and who should be involved. And much more!

James helps bring clarify to many key BCM topics to enable any professional and organization thrive in their BCM and resilience programs. Enjoy!
