How mature is your organization when it comes to business continuity & organizational resilience? Does your Business Continuity Management (BCM) program crawl, walk or run? From self-governed to synergistic, we have identified 6 levels of BCM maturity that most companies fall into. What is your organization’s level? Here is our breakdown:
Levels 1-3 represent organizations that have not yet completed the necessary program basics needed to launch a sustainable enterprise Business Continuity Management (BCM) program.
Level 1 - Self-Governed: It’s every man (or woman) for him/herself!
Individual business units and departments are "on their own" to organize, implement, and self-govern their own business continuity or disaster recovery efforts. The state-of-preparedness for disruptive events is low across the organizational enterprise. The organization or individual departments reacts to disruptive events when they occur. There is no real planning involved: business continuity recovery if reactive vs. proactive.
