As a Business Continuity Management (BCM) decision maker of an organisation, you may undeniably agree with the argument of having a strategic Business Continuity Plan (BCP) for every organisation, irrespective of its size and budget.
However, hiring a full-time BCM expert amidst high remunerations and limited scope of work, is obviously not budget-friendly, specifically for a small size firm. But why so?
If one goes by several case studies and testimonials of small and giant firms, it is not just enough to have a BCM strategy, but a right Subject Matter Expert for a specific crisis. Here, akin to SMEs of varied sectors, even BCM has diversified arenas to be looked upon.
While your Business Impact Analyst may very well understand and forecast the alarming issues, it is not possible for a single expert to handle ITDR, BCP, Crisis Management, Change Management and Quality Assurance with all diligence.
Ideally, in such scenarios, the organisations have to recruit individual experts for respective BCM assignments. But, there is no guarantee of employee retention after the completion of every project. Organisations have to bear the brunt of recruitment hassles again and again. This may be quite irksome, costing time and money.
Interestingly, for institutes like banking and finances, recruitment process is very tiresome, considering stringent laws and regulations. If this is a major concern, one has to bear the training costs and logistics for deployment of BCM experts at their global offices.
Now, you may be wondering to what extent an organisation can bear individual SME expenditures?
Before you trouble your head, here is the most cost-effective and feasible solution to manage your hiring issues. Consultancy. Yes.
