Conducting crisis management/business continuity plan training
A sustainable risk management framework can only be delivered with the assistance of competent and capable personnel. Training in the risk management framework and practices will facilitate a competent implementation of the risk process. The training will deliver the following curriculum:
- Understanding Risk Principles
- Socialising Risk
- Establishing context
- Identifying Risk
- Analysing Risk
- Evaluating Risk
- Treating Risk
- Monitoring and Reviewing Risk
- Recording Risk
- Communicating Risk
The course is to be delivered on-site in a workshop format. The course will provide a mix of theoretical and practical work and will culminate with a risk management scenario focussed on a crisis event. Crises are the materialisation of risk and impose a deviation to normal practice resulting in uncertainty. Business continuity is the process of applying risk treatment to return a business to normal operating conditions after a crisis. By planning a crisis event and simulating it in the workplace personnel can create draft business continuity plans that lead the organisation out of crisis.
HPS works with the key personnel to create a crisis simulation and subsequent risk treatments, with the aim of assessing the knowledge of the trainees. Further, the simulation will document good practices that could lead to procedures and/or work instructions for crisis management.
