Case Study: Business Continuity Planning

Business Aspect developed an organisation-wide business continuity plan for this investment corporation. The plan was based on a Business Impact Assessment (BIA) which drove the strategy outcomes and recommendations for the organisation. The purpose of the business continuity plan was to build a capability that was aligned with business requirements and that provided assured business continuity in disaster situations.

Business Aspect was subsequently engaged to perform a Boardroom scenario test of the plan. This training and testing exercise was delivered successfully and the project has since featured in continuity planning literature as a result of activation of the plan during the Queensland cyclone and flood events of 2011.
