Services: Consultancy

"The successful establishment of BC within the organization depends on its integration with the organisation’s strategic and day-to-day management as well as its alignment with business priorities and organizational culture." from the Business Continuity Institute's Good Practice Guidelines.

To establish a sustainable approach to BCM requires a consultancy approach that concentrates on developing in-house skills and experience : so we work with you rather than for you.

Continuity Systems can provide assistance in circumstances such as the following:
  • You have been told by your insurer or a customer that you should have a Business Continuity Plan but you don't know where to start.
  • Your Executive want to understand what BCM is, what it costs and what they will get out of it
  • You know you need to undertake a Business Impact Analysis but don't know how to do it
  • You want to know if your plans will work
  • Your staff need training in BCM skills

We will approach each situation with you to explore the options. The optimum solution may include:

  • conducting training or mentoring of individuals
  • review of documentation
  • providing advice and guidance
  • running exercises

- whatever best suits your requirements and resources.

We offer method, experience and enthusiasm : we do not sell software, templates or off-the-shelf packages since, in our experience, these never provide a sustainable programme.

You can be assured of the quality of our work as our staff and associates are Members or Fellows of the Business Continuity Institute - the international professional standards organisation for the profession - and subscribe to their code of professional ethics.
