Implement practical solutions in business continuity management and organizational resilience guided by international best practice from ISO 22301:2019. Business continuity management and resilience are critical to maintaining a healthy business, but many organizations either do nothing (leaving themselves exposed to disruption), take short cuts (leaving major gaps) or fail to properly engage senior stakeholders. This book is a straightforward guide to delivering an effective business continuity capability, including practical solutions built from the author's personal experience managing hundreds of projects in a variety of business settings. Business Continuity Management compares incident management, crisis response and business continuity and how to explain their importance to senior decision makers to ensure appropriate investment. Readers will benefit from case studies of organizational crises and disruptions, including Home Depot, Nissan, RBS, Facebook, Equifax and KFC, and an exploration of lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic. With key performance indicators, templates and checklists covering planning, response, reporting and assurance, this book is the essential reference for business continuity and resilience which can be tailored to any organization.

He also chairs the International Standards Committee (ISO) responsible for all global Business Continuity and Organisational Resilience ISO Standards, including ISO 22301:2019.

"Resilience and good crisis management has never been more important to society and business. The threat of disruption arising from global crisis events is greater today than it has been for many generations. Organisation's that can respond well and recover from these events will be the ones that succeed in the future, whilst others will fail. Knowing where to start in building preparedness can be daunting. James does a great job here of explaining what resilience is for an organisation in simple terms; and crucially how to get it. The book contains practical guidance and support to the reader and is as relevant to those new to the topic as it is for the seasoned practitioner." * Julia Graham, Deputy CEO and Technical Director, Airmic *
"Business continuity practices and approaches to operational resilience have matured, and the time is right for this new book which takes into account the many and varied nuances of today's organisations. James Crask pours his many years of first-hand experience across a range of organisational environments into an engaging and invaluable resource for any practitioner - seasoned or otherwise - offering a wealth of knowledge and advice on pragmatic and proportionate approaches to operational resilience." * Deborah Ritchie, Group Editor, CIR Magazine *
"Resilience should be on the agenda at every board meeting for organisations that strives to be adaptable in a world of ever-changing risk. This is a masterful and highly pragmatic book that will give the reader a great understanding and toolset to implement a strong BCM system while ensuring the support of top management. James' ability to dig deep and offer amazing insights from real-life situations makes this a must-read for anyone that has an interest in business continuity management." * Magnus Josias, Co-founder & COO, Krizo *
"To be a good business continuity management (BCM) practitioner the size of your 'toolkit' will determine the quality of your solution. James, in this book helps you to build a super 'toolkit' - not only by sharing his templates and wealth of experience which is illustrated with examples, but also by positioning BCM in relation to the larger goal of resilience. This book is not just suitable for beginners but seasoned practitioners will also learn a lot." * Michael Crooymans, Global Resilience Officer, Signify *

One of the best online booksellers out there.

I always check Booksplease before looking at other online sellers because in many instances, particularly with older titles, their books are a lot cheaper. There is added postage, but when you add this to the overall cost you are still spending less than you would otherwise pay elsewhere.
