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!

BCM and Lessons Learned from a Historical Perspective

As part of a well-functioning BCM/DR program, we should be learning from our mistakes and ensuring we can adapt and learn from the events of the past. For most, the assumption is we will learn from only our mistakes and not the mistakes of others or the past. We speak with business expert and author John Vespasian who will provide us insights on business continuity and how history can teach us about planning and lessons learned to improve our BCM/DR thinking and efforts. We’ll talk about that by not validating conditions caused problems for Berblinger; how some groups were able to survive the Black Death; how Ancient Greece was able to survive using good planning over the mighty Persian Empire and even how risk assessments ensured the survival of an Antarctic expedition. It’s quite an enlightening and eye-opening episode chock full of interesting perspectives.

Lessons Learned from Hurricane Harvey – August 2017

Continuing with our speaker series from the Continuity & Resilience Today conference in Toronto (May 2018), we speak with Emergency Management subject matter expert and registered nurse, Dee Grimm who will talk about the Lessons Learned from Hurricane Harvey (August 2017). Harvey presented unique challenges as it created unprecedented numbers of evacuees and those left homeless. Even today there are over 30,000 displaced persons in shelters and hotels throughout the state. Additionally, the medical challenges of closed or evacuating healthcare facilities, the loss of community health support systems and home health services for these displaced individuals all had to be planned for. Dee with talk about how the State managed the sheltering and medical responses and about the “boots on the ground”. Valuable lessons learned will be discussed and Dee will provide insight into best practices for providing mass care sheltering and medical support during catastrophic events.
