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As a result of this focus on proven practices it can help practitioners stray away from outdated and ineffectual “best” practices.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  • Recognize specific practices in traditional Business Continuity that may be problematic, outdated, or ineffective further down the road.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.

Are You Wasting Your Full Business Continuity Potential?

Adaptive Business Continuity may deliver value 11 to 18 times faster than traditional BC practices. By staying with Traditional Business Continuity practices that date back to IBM mainframes and Y2K, practices that have yet to catch up to Lean, Six Sigma, Agile, Management 3.0, and the nature of life in 2018, you are significantly limiting your potential as a BC professional. An approach that empowered you to be twice or three times more efficient in your professional role would most most certainly warrant some consideration -- one that offered ELEVEN times more productivity, eleven times more value for your efforts, demands attention.

The Unbearable Lightness of BC-ing

 The move from Traditional to Adaptive Business Continuity (BC) may be uncomfortable for a number of reasons, but perhaps the most uncomfortable change concerns the general elimination of documentation as a deliverable.
Traditional BC centers almost entirely around documentation. The practitioner begins by obtaining full executive approval, then creates the BC policy document, "the key document that sets out the purpose, context, scope, and governance of the business continuity programme" (BCI GPG p.14). The practitioner then generates an RA, and, from one to four types of BIAs (ibid p.38). The center of the Traditional BC universe is the plan. The job of the BC practitioner is to create the plan, make sure everyone is familiar with the plan, and then update the plan on a regular basis. Tests are then conducted to validate "that the plans are current, accurate, effective, and complete" (ibid p.87). All these documentation activities most likely take place for every department (or process!) within the organization, thus resulting in mounds of proverbial "shelfware." In stark contrast, the Adaptive BC approach focuses on recovery capabilities.
