A report of the Chartered Management Institute shows that despite 82 per cent
of those surveyed reporting that their senior management view business
continuity management (BCM) as important or very important, just 58 per cent
say they have plans in place to cater for unexpected disruptions. Despite this,
the report shows clear advantages for organisations which do have plans in
place to deal with crises when they hit. Of those who had to activate plans, 84
per cent agreed it reduced disruption and 77 per cent stated that any cost in
developing plans is offset by the business benefits they bring.
The report also offers practical recommendations and identifies further
resources to help managers improve their own organisation's BCM.
