First Practical Guide to Integrating Risk Management, Business Continuity Management and Corporate Governance From Two World-Renowned BCM Pioneers Who Have Served on the British Standards Institution (BSI) Team Creating a British and International Standard for Risk Management. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is currently developing disaster preparedness standards for businesses. DHS is incorporating language from the British Standards Institution (BSI) because it "provides a management systems approach to business continuity and integrates risk management disciplines and processes." The two authors of this now classic text in the field have been directly involved in developing those BSI standards. Here they bring you a distillation of their worldwide experience in pioneering the integration of the disciplines of risk management and business continuity. This practical guide is endorsed by: * * * The Business Continuity Institute * * * The Institute for Risk Management * * * Disaster Recovery Institute International It includes numerous helpful features: * * * Chapter objectives, summaries and bibliographies; charts, sample forms, checklists throughout * * * Plentiful case studies, in boxed text, drawn from enterprises around the globe, including the UK, US, Europe, Australia, Asia, etc. * * * Boxed inserts summarizing key concepts * * * Glossy of 150 risk management and business continuity terms * * * Timely topics, including stakeholder management, supplier management, outsourcing, the people factor, technology recovery, and communication, both internally and externally. * * * Wide range of challenges, including supply chain disruptions, media and brand attack, product contamination and product recall, bomb threats, chemical and biological threats, etc. * * * Instructions for designing/executing team exercises with role playing to rehearse scenarios * * * Guidance on how to develop a business continuity plan, including a Business Impact Analysis * * * Ideal for senior undergraduate, MBA, certificate, corporate training programs; in use at 50+ campuses worldwide * * * Instructor Materials on CD, including PowerPoint slides and syllabus for 12-week course with lecture outlines/notes, quizzes, reading assignments, discussion topics, projects * * * Authors with extensive international experience in all aspects of risk management and business continuity, having worked with organizations in a combined total of 50 countries The authors' message is that risk management has become a strategic tool in managing all risk across an organization, and that BCM forms one more important tool in a much wider and coordinated risk management program. They are now complementary disciplines that must be understood and supported by your organization as a whole, including CEO's, directors, non- executive directors, risk managers, continuity managers, internal and external auditors, investment managers, compliance managers, finance directors, human resource managers, project managers, regulators, corporate trainers and other stakeholders. After discussing the relationship between risk management and BCM, the authors take the reader through the business continuity management cycle: how to understand the organization and its culture; continuity strategies; how to develop and implement a business continuity response, including developing a Business Impact Analysis; building and embedding a business continuity culture; testing/exercising a plan, along with benchmarking, maintenance and audit. "This book is a must read for those senior managers, risk managers and continuity managers who have the vision to see both the new opportunities and the new responsibilities of business continuity management." - George J. Mitchell, Chairman, DLA Piper Rudnick Gray Cary; Former Senate Majority Leader and U.S. Senator for Maine.
As the title suggests, this book is a financial guide for small business. It is an easy to read, straight to the point book based on forty years of accounting and finance experience by the author. It covers key areas of financial success for a small business such as: creating a purchasing manual, controlling and promoting labor efficiency, weekly profit and loss reporting, controlling utility costs, setting operating targets and influencing revenue growth. While this book targets small businesses already in existence, there is a bonus section on creating a business plan. In addition to the book, the reader gains access to fully developed and easy to alter templates created in either Microsoft Word or Excel for creating a Purchasing Manual along with commonly used forms to compliment the purchasing function. Two of these forms help with the complicated decision process concerning whether to invest in Property, Plant and Equipment or Major Repairs. There are other templates that may help in implementing a Weekly P&L Report. Also, available is a fully developed Business Plan that should help in the creation of this start-up document along with functional financial statements and functional supporting schedules. The book gives the reader a wealth of information and provokes some thought processes critical to financial success. It could be a financially rewarding tool for little investment.
