Modern businesses are complex and as our environments evolve, our risk and threat landscapes grow along with them.
Resilience program policies, plans, and processes you had in place just a few years ago may not be effective in your more complex work environment today. So, how do you get an accurate, complete look into your existing program and risk landscape so you can improve your readiness and response capabilities?
A resilience management program assessment might be what you need to identify gaps and weaknesses and mature your program before problems occur.
And it’s something you can get started doing on your own today, or if you need help, you can also partner with an assessment consultant to make your program stronger.
First, what is a resilience management program assessment?
A resilience management assessment can help you identify your current state of preparedness, as well as any gaps or weaknesses so you can make plans to address them and mature your program over time. It’s an important part of the process of moving from your current profile to the target profile you want to achieve in both the short and long term.
Assessing your resilience management program is more than just double-checking your documents or paperwork before for your next audit. It’s about applying a more holistic approach to program management so you get better insight into your program’s big picture, all the while helping you identify and manage the granular details that contribute to success and close gaps where necessary.
So, where do you begin? How can you get a resilience management program assessment underway?
While every assessment may look different depending on the scope and nature of your operations, here are some tips that may help:
Throughout your assessment, be sure to document your findings. You’ll use these findings to determine where you need additional capabilities so you can work toward maturing resilience in the days, weeks, and months ahead. This should also include action plans and timelines to remediate any weaknesses or deficiencies you uncover.
You can use these action items to develop a short- and long-term roadmap, which can cover the next quarter, overview the next year, and get you set for the future. This can help you better engage with your executives and key stakeholders about where and when you’ll need to invest in resources, people, technology, and funding.
In addition to your program assessment, you may also find it easier to support your program and stay aligned with your roadmap by adopting a simple, easy-to-use platform that supports your readiness and response capabilities.
In many instances, organizations find by adopting resilience management software, they can automate a number of tasks that help them reduce administrative burden and have continuous insight into their programs at all times.
A resilience management SaaS solution like Castellan can even manage alerts and notifications so you’re always aware of any potential disruptions developing in real time.
If you don’t have the resources available to give your programs a thorough review, it may be helpful to work with a resilience management consultant, like the experts at Castellan, who can bring additional expertise, support, research, and resources to your team.
Not only will a consultant assist in evaluating the current status and maturity of your program, but they’ll also identify areas for improvement and provide you the resources and expertise to implement them efficiently.
