Successful expansion of the scope and effectiveness of our business continuity programs can be achieved by leveraging powerful techniques that provide structural, cultural, and technological building blocks to drive the level of organizational change needed to achieve organization-wide results.   These are some of the same techniques that drove the successful transformation of the software development profession from waterfall to Agile methodologies over the past 15 years.

Our webinar presenter will discuss how to apply Agile principles to business continuity programs to achieve greater organizational buy-in, higher levels of participation, better preparedness, and the creation of a continuous improvement engine. We will also delve into how to address the opportunities and challenges of operating in today’s ever changing and globally connected landscape. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Build continuous feedback into your programs 
  • Reduce the time of your plan/do/check/act cycles
  • Create a bias for transparency
