Why Business Continuity Management?

Why Business Continuity Management?

Duration: 1 Day (9.00am - 5.00pm) | Code: JB-301

Course Objective

More and more organisations are looking into BCM to be resilient in their business operations.

As business risks are constantly changing, organisations have become more vulnerable to risk exposures. Top-of-Foodchain companies, including public service, are increasing demanding of their supply-chain partners to be operationally resilient so that they too are resilient. The need to show their reliability as a supplier is now a vendor-rating prerequisite.

But to many top managements, it is still unknown what BCM exactly is? How does it work? What real value could it bring to the organisation and stakeholders? What would it take to implement a BCM System - the costs, resources, and how long will the project phase be. In other words, is it a viable task to undertake with a reasonable return on investment?

The course provides clear explanations in simple language of the issues stated in the preceding paragraph. The participants will understand the methodologies, BCM standards and the working principles of BCM systems. Additionally, how they can take advantage of the BCM grant as offered by SPRING Singapore under the capability building scheme.

CEO/MD, board directors and senior managers will benefit from this course.
