Meet-The-Expert Malaysia, BCM Seminar Overview

The biggest trap that a business continuity (BC) project or BC Management (BCM) programme is ... to think that simply having a good BC plan is all there is to it. Often, the failing to complete some aspects during the project planning process will return to haunt the managing of an organization's BC plan and/or BCM program. Like the human skeleton, good BC project planning and its implementation give form, substance and strength to any good BC project or BCM programme. Those who are new to BC, this seminar will help you learn about the pitfalls and the key success factors. As for the skilled professionals, they will be able to return to their organisations with some of the "remedies" and best practices to the implementation and maintenance of their BCM programmes.
