Business Continuity

OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAMME
One of the biggest challenges for organisations worldwide is ensuring that business keeps on running, even during adverse times or events. Disasters can strike at any moment, and service disruptions can cost you millions in revenue as well as multiple dissatisfied stakeholders. In today’s hyper-competitive market, it will not take long for your customers to switch to your competition should they not receive the service they expect or for communities to protest against poor service delivery. Organisational managers therefore need to within the context of their organisation, understand the requirements for leadership, planning, support in order to ensure business continuity.
