PHOENIX, ARIZONA – January 24, 2017 – MHA Consulting, Inc. (MHA), a leader in Business Continuity Planning, announced that its March webinar, BCM ROI is the New Black, scheduled for March 8, 2017, will feature industry expert Michael Herrera, CEO at MHA Consulting. Michael will be discussing the factors for calculating the Return on Investment (ROI) in your BCM program today, and how you can leverage your program to address ROI in your organization. Join us for a discussion on this timely topic.
“The state of BCM Return on Investment (ROI) is still a mixed bag,” said Herrera. “There are pockets of high ROI in highly regulated industries (such as banking and finance), but overall I would say it’s not where it needs to be. Using our methodology, an elevated ROI score is a good indicator of high compliance and low residual risk, and more importantly, it’s a good indicator of program recoverability.”
Description: Assessing Business Continuity Management (BCM) Return on Investment (ROI) is essential to the success of your program and its ability to recover the critical operations of your organization. Understanding your BCM ROI tells you if your program is getting the intended results, and can allow for a quick course change if the numbers start to move in the wrong direction.
Our research has concluded that a high percentage of BCM practitioners do not utilize meaningful metrics (compliance, residual risk, ROI) to assess the health and capability of their programs, yet complain that management does understand their needs. Calculating ROI is one method to engage management and provide a basis for managing expectations. In this webinar, we will discuss:
- What factors are critical to determining BCM ROI?
- How can you assess compliance in your program?
- How can you assess residual risk in your program?
- How can you calculate your BCM program ROI using these factors?
Date & Time: Wednesday, March 8, 2017 – 2 pm EST / 12 noon MST / 11 am Pacific PST
