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!

Putting the Cyber in Organizational Resilience

Join me March 11/21 at 9am EST!

One of the greatest threats organizations have at the moment is the ever-increasing threat of Cyber attacks. It’s the new ‘new’ battleground. I talk with globally recognized Business Continuity industry expert, James Green, who presented at the BCI Virtual World 2020 Conference in November 2020. James will talk about how Business Continuity professionals and methodologies can work with Information Security / Cyber Security professionals to contribute to the creation of organizational resilience. We’ll also touch on such subjects as who own BCM and Cyber Security, how we can consolidate threat/risk responses, and the factors – both internal and external – that can contribute to creating a sense of resilience. It’s another great chat with James, so don’t miss it!

Business Continuity Management: In Practice w/ Stuart Hotchkiss

Join me Feb 18/21 at 9am EST! Successful business continuity requires the creation of and adherence to a plan, which ensure an organization’s critical functions are maintained or restored in the event of disruption (e.g. fires, natural disasters, etc.). Join me as I talk with recognized industry expert and author Stuart Hotchkiss and his book ‘Business Continuity Management: In Practice”. BCM can be made very over-complicated and Stuart provides a clear and simple approach to understanding what BCM is, and what it isn’t. We’ll touch on such subjects as the BCP, testing, audit, awareness, and the problems associated with the Business Impact Assessment (BIA) and the establishment of recovery time objectives. Some may consider this a controversial episode – I think it’s one not to be missed!

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.
