Planning for the Business Impact Analysis

PHOENIX, ARIZONA – MHA Consulting, Inc. (MHA), a leader in Business Continuity Planning, announced that its next webinar, Planning for the Business Impact Analysis, part 2 of the Introduction to the BIA series is scheduled for June 12, 2019. The webinar will feature industry expert Michael Herrera, CEO of MHA Consulting. Michael will be discussing the importance of taking time early in your project development process to determine the scope, objectives, stakeholders, tools, and other details of the BIA. Without this foundation, you run the risk of conducting a BIA that wastes stakeholders time, produces unreliable results, and ruins your reputation.

Join us for an insightful look at this timely topic.

“For years, we’ve been working with clients to enhance the maturity of their business continuity programs,” said Michael Herrera. “I am thrilled to have this opportunity to continue to help both novice and experienced professionals use the Business Impact Analysis to understand their organization’s critical business processes, and to use that information to build an effective strategy that addresses the recovery of those processes in an appropriate time frame.”


Planning your BIA is critical to the success of the project. Unfortunately, we see a lack of planning in BIAs today. Most practitioners are spending little or no time up front in determining the scope, objectives, stakeholders, data analysis, tools, and other details of their BIAs. You should have a solid understanding of these matters BEFORE you start communicating with your subject matter experts.

If you’re not already well-versed in the components of a BIA, this webinar series is for you. In part two of the series, Planning for the BIA, speaker Michael Herrera will guide you through conducting a well-organized and thorough BIA.

In this webinar, we will address:

  • Understanding the project phases
  • BIA planning steps
    • Obtain Management Commitment
    • Establish Clear Objectives
    • Establish Scope of Project
    • Organization & Timeline
  • Identifying Audience Level
  • And more

Date & Time:  Wednesday, June 12, 2019 – 2 pm Eastern/ 11 am Arizona / 11 am Pacific
