The latest resilience news from around the world

New BCI paper: Responding to the resilience challenge

The Business Continuity Institute has published a new paper which outlines how individuals and organizations should rise to the challenge that resilience offers.

‘Responding to the resilience challenge’ shows how business continuity practitioners can ‘use their unique understanding of value creation within an organization to influence governance and promote informed decision making’. In these uncertain times, business continuity managers can push organizations to become more agile in dealing with emerging risks, while taking a clear role in crisis leadership when risks materialise into disruptions.

The paper claims that, because resilience practice is expected to grow into a highly technical role that will require practitioners to bridge academic knowledge and professional experience, business continuity practitioners should use their background as a foundation for understanding other management disciplines.

Practitioners will also be expected to address the gap between existing technical expertise among management disciplines to decision making at the top.
