The Business Continuity Business Case Template
Business continuity is much more than making plans to deal with disasters and disruptions. It’s an integral part of a broader resilience effort - not just during a crisis, but continuously, through all the ups and downs of normal operations.
Pairing the strategic nature of operational resilience with business continuity offers an opportunity to connect the strategic and tactical. The knowledge gained by pairing these efforts also creates better business cases to invest in resilience because resilience gaps easily map to product and services, as well as customers and the marketplace. Measuring resilience based on customer pain and product/service availability also resonates much more powerfully with senior leaders when compared to measuring by the readiness of processes and resources.
This template is designed to help you create your organization’s business case for investing in a business continuity and resilience capability, with the end goal of protecting your people, brand, and bottom-line.
Within, we summarize the five key drivers that lead most organizations to invest:
- External Drivers
- Impact Categories
- Revenue at Risk
- Vulnerability to Disruption
- Current-State Business Continuity Capability
Leverage the tools provided in this fully customizable template to evaluate your organization across each driver and determine your unique business case for investing in a business continuity and resilience capability.
