BCM & DR: NAME THE RADIO SHOW!!

As you may know from our last post, our founder Alex Fullick, will be doing an internet radio show on the Talk Radio Network at http://www.voiceamerica.com.

Based on all things Business Continuity Management (BCM) related, such as Disaster Planning, Emergency Management, personal safety (home, privacy…), Crisis Management & Communications, Business Continuity Planning etc. the show hopes to bring the BCM industry awareness to the masses.

But we still need a name!!

Soooo, be creative and provide us a suggested name for the show.

The only guidelines is that is should be short and catchy and easily identifiable to everyone – not just industry practitioners.

We’re looking forward to what you come up with.

 

Regards,

The StoneRoad Team

PS: If the winning suggestion comes from a response provided through this site, we’ll try talk Alex into providing some sort of goodie for ya!

BCM & DR: Managing Dependencies and Expectations

Well, it’s that time again when I write about personal experience rather than academic doctrine and how the two end up conflicting and sometimes not providing what you want in the end.

Recently, during a few meeting it was discussed that a new process was required for Senior Management reporting purposes and the manager requesting the process provided some guidelines/requirements on what was needed.  Sounds easy enough. Continue reading

BCM/DR: Face-to-Face Meetings

I’ve often run into people that have to ‘send an email’ with a question for a person that’s located on a few seats away.   Are they afraid of that person?  Why can’t they just get up and go see them for a couple of minutes to ask what they need to ask?  It seems the art of face-to-face communication is disappearing in favor of CYA (Cover You’re A…) and audit concerns.  Continue reading

Trends in Business Continuity and Disaster Planning?

I’ve noticed recently that there are allot of Webinars and articles touting the trends within Business Continuity Management, Disaster Planning and many other ‘disaster’ related industries; to the point where ‘trend’ has become a buzzword for anything new regardless of how much value – both long term and short term value – it might offer.  Continue reading
