Our Value-Driver Approach to BCM Planning: A
Senior Associate, Commercial Resilience Practice,
Booz Allen Hamilton, McLean, VA
cost-constrained business environment, BCM leaders must
take a very pragmatic approach to understanding what
drives the value within an organization. The customary
bottoms-up Business Impact Analyses (BIAs) require an
intensive and time-consuming effort to identify the
functions and processes that are truly critical.
Focusing on “mission critical processes” or “key
processes” is good, but if these processes do not
directly link to the functions that underpin the
organization’s real value, then the BCM program may fail
to gain leadership engagement and investment.

The Human Factors in the Financial
Crisis. Putting personal preparedness to work beyond the
Lisa Orloff, Founder, Executive Director, World
Cares, New York, NY
Steven M. Crimando, Managing Director, Extreme
Behavior Risk Management, New York, NY.
Like other threatening
and disruptive events, a serious economic crisis can
produce dramatic emotional and behavioral responses in
employees, critical stakeholders and the population at
large. Some of these reactions parallel those
experienced in the wake of disasters and violent events,
and others are unique to financial and economic crises.
Understanding these reactions can help planners predict
and prepare for the psychological consequences of such
events and appropriately adjust policies and plans to
mitigate adverse effects.
This program will address
critical areas of knowledge related to the psychological
impact of financial crises, as well as developing
effective behavioral counter-measures and identifying
useful resources for employees and their families, as
well as other key stakeholders.
