A Program Management Approach for Business Continuity
Business Continuity programs often grow organically within an organization based on need – or a single incident – rather than being planned and managed as a program from top to bottom. In this presentation, participants will learn how to design, implement, manage, and mature a business continuity program using the principles of program management.
Topics discussed will include the standards for Portfolio, Program, and Project Management; the strategic alignment of continuity & crisis management programs; using maturity models to chart the growth of your program, and governance. Additional topics will include business case development and program communication to senior executives and board members.
Key learning points:
* BC Programs can be strengthened using program management principles.
* Utilization of a maturity model can chart your program's progress
* Strong, clearly communicated business cases are critical to program success
