Business Continuity Management: key strategies and processes Logo cgma

  CIMA, AICPA |   Free |   CIMA |   Apr 2016 |   Thought leadership

Organisations around the world have been the victims of all sorts of disruptions. Over the years, man-made and natural disasters have unveiled the vulnerability of businesses on a global scale.

Business continuity management (BCM) capabilities enable organisations to restore their businesses to normal operations following an unanticipated disaster or business interruption. To date, however, the corporate BCM capabilities necessary to establish that resiliency generally have ranged from absent to insufficient. The purpose of this tool is to help provide finance and accounting managers with a foundation on which to further develop their BCM thinking, strategy and processes. 

Topics covered:
  • Management accounting: Business: Strategy, Advanced
  • Management accounting: Technical: Risk management & internal control: Risk management policies & procedures, Expert

Key topic considering the current Pandemic , any organisation “who had developed and implemented “ the sound “BCM” would have managed the current unprecedented situation with ease.

Very interesting and gave a totally new perspective to risk and mitigation. Nice points on how to bring back the operations to normal in an efficient way. 

In todays dynamic world one needs to plan and concept of BCM is more relevant. Nice article to read.
