How To Simplify Cause Analysis With Interactive Tools

The Pathology of Leadership Error in Crisis

Self-Inflicted Leadership Crisis Response Failure Behaviors

1. Surprise: Stems from the U.S. management culture developed over the last 40 years which stresses the invincibility of managers and leaders based on extensive monitoring and data collection to the exclusion of many traditional (historic?) management beliefs, actions, concerns and functions. Today’s prevailing attitude is that smart managers are unlikely to suffer a crisis.

The unintended consequence of this delusion is that much necessary readiness activity never takes place.

Part of the surprise crisis always brings is related to the almost immediate realization by these smart leaders that readiness has suffered in an environment of management omnipotence and over optimism about inherent response capabilities.

The lesson: The smarter they are the harder and faster they fall.

The outcome is: The refusal to believe that things are serious, i.e. not wanting to look too concerned in the eyes and gossip of peers.

Webinar – Six Drivers and Ten Principles: An Introduction to Adaptive Business Continuity

Six Drivers and Ten Principles:  An Introduction to Adaptive Business Continuity
Thursday, January 17, 2019
2:00 p.m. ET
REGISTER HERE

Adaptive Business Continuity (Adaptive BC) is an approach to continuously improve an organization’s recovery capabilities, with a focus on the continued delivery of services following an unexpected unavailability of people, locations, and/or resources. Adaptive BC transforms or eliminates the majority of traditional activities in the continuity planning industry. 

As a result of this focus on proven practices it can help practitioners stray away from outdated and ineffectual “best” practices. Join author, speaker, and unconventional business continuity thought-leader David Lindstedt as he presents Six Drivers and Ten Principles: An Introduction to Adaptive BC, an in-depth discussion that explores the ways in which Adaptive BC better equips continuity practitioners by enhancing their ability to limit potential damage to organizations’ brand, capital, functions, and revenue following an incident or disaster. Continuity Insights will be hosting this complementary webinar on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Register here to learn more about this critical topic:
Six Drivers and Ten Principles: An Introduction to Adaptive BC.          

Adaptive Business Continuity's Newest approach

Through a wealth of examples, diagrams, and real-world case studies, Lindstedt and Armour show you the most important steps on how to execute an Adaptive Business Continuity. The book further outlines a framework for you to include in your own organization. For instance, you will:

  • Recognize specific practices in traditional Business Continuity that may be problematic, outdated, or ineffective further down the road.
  • Identify specific, but important activities that you may wish to eliminate from your practice.
  • Learn the capability and constraint model of recoverability.
  • Understand how Adaptive BC can be effective in organizations with vastly different cultures and program maturity levels.
  • See how to take the steps to implement Adaptive BC in your own organization.
  • Think through some of the most important challenges and opportunities that may arise as you implement an Adaptive Business Continuity approach.

Altogether this framework will help your business improve and demonstrate a more effective continuity plan.
