Training – Organizational Resilience

OR 8 – Policy and Program Management

Course Overview

Establishing and managing a resilience program is not the same as writing a business continuity plan. The latter is an important outcome of a well-run program; while the attributes associated with policy and program management typically include: setting policy, defining governance measures, determining scope, setting principles, guidelines and minimum standards for achieving a desired level of organizational resilience.

This course takes delegates on a journey of discovery, explaining how to set up and run a successful management system which aligns with national and international standards and guidelines. It offers delegates the chance to learn how to set up and implement a resilience program; and learn techniques for solving perhaps the biggest riddle in business continuity – the maximum extent of damage, loss or disruption an organization can survive.

Course delegates – especially those tasked with responsibility for program management – will learn how to identify key aspects required of successful policy and program development while learning how to manage, review and keep it dynamic as the organization changes.
