By its nature, a Business Continuity Program
develops plans to prepare for the unexpected. This conflicts
with a key principle of project management - that timely
decisions and certainty of goals are essential to delivering
a project successfully. Hence, however well defined the
Business Continuity Planning process may be, its outcome is
subject to the uncertainties of unpredictable events. This
presentation introduces Quality Risk Management (QRM) into
the Business Continuity Planning process. QRM elevates
the role of risk identification, management and mitigation
in the planning process. It transforms where project risk is
managed, putting it into the hands of the Business
Continuity Manager who is then supported by the involved
business channels. This enables the entire Business
Continuity project team to collectively share and address
the issues of risk.
