A11 – How to Engage C-Suite Team Members Using Bite-Size Training
Christopher Sarcletti, Specialist, Enterprise BCM, BMO Harris Bank, and Eric Thompson, CEO, Crisis Guardian
Getting time with C-Suite executives to train them on their role and their responsibilities in a crisis has been a mission impossible task. The process was long and protracted – setting aside training sessions that executives found difficult to attend. A new approach was required. One that grabbed their attention, could be delivered to any team member across any state. An approach that could get all the messages across in less than 10 minutes. Without the constraints of eLearning and platform requirements. And so flexible that it could be delivered on any device as well as through conventional intranet and sharepoint channels.

Tim Mathews, DSc, MBA, MBCI, Executive Director, Enterprise Resilience, ETS
Supply chains and critical third parties continue to add complexity to understanding our overall resilience.

This presentation will explain what SDOC is, why you may want to implement a SDOC methodology and considerations for getting started.
D4 – Process Maturity vs. Program Capabilities – Panelist Discussion with Live Audience Polling
David Sarabacha, Deloitte
Back by popular demand, join us in revisiting a modern BCM program assessment approach that answers some of executive’s most important questions – ‘Can we recover? How confident are we? Are we making the right investments?’ Traditional assessments fall short, overemphasizing documentation and adherence to industry standards while overlooking results. In contrast, the Resilience Strategy and Operating Effectiveness (RSOE) concept focuses on determining the operating effectiveness of your program processes and the level of recoverability it has created for your mission critical functions. It helps with the discovery of recoverability gaps, including business readiness, validation of recovery resource priorities, vetting of documented strategies and project assumptions, and evaluation of recovery capabilities. Following a brief presentation, engage in an interactive panelist discussion supported by live audience polling that lifts to veil on how prepared organizations are today.
