BCP and the Human Factor: Building Resilience From the Inside

Speakers for this event:
  • Gerald Lewis, Ph.D., International Consultant and Trainer  Learn More
  • Roland Johnson, President, Office Shadow, Inc.  Learn More
  • BCP and the Human Factor: Building Resilience From the Inside

    Only by understanding the psychology of your staff and building this learning into your recovery plans can you optimize your resilience to major disruptions.


    Join OSI and Gerald Lewis Ph.D to listen to an insightful discussion into getting the most from employees, associates and business partners when standard operating procedures just don’t apply.  As Gerry says “You can get your phone lines back up, your computers backed up - yet your employees may still be messed up." 


    Office Shadow, Inc. will introduce Shadow-Planner BCP software tools and discuss how the ‘Plan’ has to be so much more than a recovery ‘manual’.  If you need an index to find something, you probably won’t bother.  How can we develop and structure plans so that our well thought out procedures really are the lowest path of resistance when there is smoke in your eyes and staff are not thinking clearly?



    Executives involved in Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, IT Management, IT Security, Compliance.

    Industries:  All industries, including Financial Services, Energy and Utilities, Healthcare, Manufacturing and Government.
