Rothstein Publishing is offering Business Continuity professionals a free chapter – Governance in the Resilient Organization – from Jim Burtles’s landmark book Principles and Practice of Business Continuity: Tools and Techniques.
Chapters 1-15 in the book, describe techniques for approaching the development and delivery of a successful and effective business continuity (BC) program by exploring the tools, techniques, and products. At this point, you should be in a position to practice this discipline in a professional manner, and this book has focused on the detail level at which BC is expected to operate and prove to be beneficial.
Now, in this chapter, intended for both the experienced BC practitioner and a person entering the profession, you have a chance to look upwards and outwards to see where BC fits within your organization’s hierarchy and how it might filter upwards and penetrate downwards, as BC is integrated into your corporate culture.
The available chapter – Governance in the Resilient Organization – will help you to:
- Maintain a permanent response capability.
- Manage major organizational changes.
- Understand what it takes to achieve ongoing resilience.
- Develop resilience as an integral part of the culture.
This comprehensive yet practical business continuity textbook is taught in colleges and universities worldwide. It’s your best resource to learn business continuity management. Included are extensive downloadable resources and tools, and extensive instructional materials (on approved course adoption).
In this 2nd edition of Principles and Practice of Business Continuity: Tools and Techniques, Burtles explains six main scenarios. He promises: “If you and your organization are prepared to deal with these six generic risks, you will be able to recover from any business disaster.”
Principles and Practice of Business Continuity: Tools and Techniques is endorsed by the Business Continuity Institute and includes a downloadable Business Continuity Toolkit and extensive instructional materials available upon qualification.
