Live Presentation

Live Broadcast Presentation: Fitting Crisis Response into your Quality Program

Tuesday, August 4, 10:00 a.m. CDT
Presented by Bob Mellinger, Founder and CEO, Attainium

How do organizations continue to function in the event of a major disruption? Through the creation and implementation of a continuity plan to mitigate risk and ensures consistency. However, risk management is often treated as a separate quality management project, and while they are distinct concepts, there is a need for intentional collaboration between them to optimize process improvements and product quality.

In this live presentation, you’ll learn which disruptions can affect an organization, and how to develop a response plan that fits within an enterprise-wide quality program.  Attendees will understand the difference between Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, the principles of crisis management, the components of a Business Continuity Plan and how this plan can align with an existing quality management program.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify organizational risk, critical infrastructure, and key business functions
  • Develop a strategic crisis response to major disruption
  • Review key emergency/crisis management principles for quality professionals
  • Create a plan for business resumption that aligns with quality objectives
  • Establish a framework for a Business Continuity Plan for a quality organization

Live Q&A will accompany this presentation, and access to a recorded archive will be included in the purchase.
