Strategic BCP, creator of ResilienceONE® business continuity management (BCM) software, has introduced The BCM Professional’s Playbook Series—a collection of strategic-insights for decision-makers concerned about business continuity (BC), disaster recovery (DR), risk assessment, and crisis management. Subject matter is based on more than 15 years of hands-on BC and DR experience in corporate, financial, healthcare, education, and government environments. Each playbook covers multiple facets of a unique continuity topic, supported by game-plan checklists that can be used to improve outcomes.
Two titles are currently available in the series from Strategic BCP—Five Steps to BCM Customer Satisfaction and Assessing, Mitigating, and Managing Risk. Future topics to be addressed include metrics for BC planning, and recommendations for demonstrating value in BCM exercises.
“Regardless of the tools used to build and manage business continuity plans—manually assembled documents or specialized BC software—the strategic foundation behind any tactical approach will affect outcomes,” explains Strategic BCP president and co-founder Frank Perlmutter, CBCP, MBCI. “These playbooks deliver thought-provoking perspectives for both newcomers and seasoned professionals, along with practical strategies that have worked for other organizations.”
The playbooks reflect many of the same considerations used to develop ResilienceONE as a tool for strategic planning as well a tool for automating continuity planning and management. The insights they provide, however, are relevant to any business continuity professional and are not restricted to any specific software or methodology.
Compare ResilienceONE capabilities to static document-based and non-database software systems.
