The W. O'Donnell Consulting Team

A good plan begins with a good team. Our team of experts have successfully worked with numerous businesses in the Albany, NY area to build business continuity plans that work.  We begin by establishing groundwork for the project by learning about critical functions of your business, setting up oversight processes, coordinating training, and establishing key team members.  Key team members should include:

Sponsor
This individual will be responsible for the overall responsibility and accountability for the entire business continuity plan. 

Manager
The manager will assign responsibilities for the program. 

Assistant Business Continuity Manager
The assistant manager role will be to serve as back-up to the manager. 

Administrative Assistant
The assistant shall provide as-needed support to the entire team. 

From a functional perspective, our team works alongside you to provide expert guidance and support throughout the process of establishing a plan for continuity. Additional individuals are added to the team as needed. The goal is to implement strategies that will enable you to quickly recover key business and technology functions.

Building Process & Establishing Standards

Poorly planned business processes are destined for failure. Our team of knowledgeable experts has the skillset to build solid processes that create formal process flows and boundaries. This documented strategy provides a sequence of actions that are critical to business continuity. A successful plan should include: 

Process purpose
This document clearly defines why a process is needed and it outlines how the organization will benefit from having an established business continuity plan. 

Process scope
The process scope will include a detailed description of what is included in the business process. 

Process boundaries
Boundaries will dictate where the process starts and where it ends.  Boundaries must be clearly identified and documented.  It is also essential that all team members clearly understand process boundaries. 

Process flow
The process flow, which is typically presented in graph form, will provide detailed instructions of each process from start to finish. 

Goals
This section will include expectations for specific individual processes, as well as collectively for the whole of the business. 

Measurement
Business processes should be measured to serve as a guide to justify a means of control to improve performance efficiencies. 

We have a plan.

Businesses must have plans to deal with difficult situations. Let W. O’Donnell Consulting help your business build a successful plan that includes detailed instructions to follow in the event of disaster, fire, flood, or cyberattack. Contact us today to get started.
