None of us wants to think about a disaster striking our business or major project. However, every business large or small, needs a business continuity plan to help recover quickly and efficiently from disasters that may occur. Contingency Planning is for anyone in technical, project management, leadership or general management positions; but can be especially beneficial to those who are responsible for project, process or general business management since all of these positions involve being prepared for potential disasters or disruptions.
Businesses (and Project Managers) need a detailed plan for continuing to operate in the event of a catastrophe such as a fire, an extended utility outage, catastrophic equipment failures, severe weather, natural disaster, terrorist attack, active shooter or other disastrous situations. A contingency plan or business continuity plan includes an emergency plan with detailed execution steps and responsibilities identified.
Contingency Planning is a practical course that uses real world examples. It is intended to provide an understanding of contingency planning by looking into several scenarios that could lead to business disruptions and how to mitigate those potential risks. This class can provide the tools for developing your contingency plan, and hope that the plan you develop is never used!
The learning objectives are for participants to:
1. Review the basic concepts of risk management
2. Know the steps for creating a contingency plan that makes sense
3. Be able to create a comprehensive contingency plan for your business or project
4. Help you prepare should disaster strike
