Training & Awareness

Everyone needs to know what to do before, during and after a disruptive event

 It is essential that key individuals understand pre- and post-incident responsibilities to enable them to respond and recover quickly and efficiently to an adverse situation. Teed does not want leave a client with great plans and actions to increase resilience if there is insufficient understanding how to deal with these once Teed has completed the project.

It is really important to make sure everyone in the organisation understands that an effective BCM programme is the key to achieving a well-managed response and recovery from a disruptive event. Good, interesting and relevant training is essential for everyone in the organisation and should be tailored to different roles and responsibilities accordingly.

Training is a recognised element of the BCM standard ISO 22301, which advocates embedding BCM in the culture of the organisation through development of an ongoing training and awareness programme. It is important to recognise the types of circumstances in an organisation’s business as usual model where a business continuity or IT disaster recovery focus is required, to ensure there are no holes in the business recovery mechanism.

Engaging, thought-provoking, relevant

Teed is committed to providing training and awareness throughout the project and in focused sessions; participants benefit from Teed’s experience gained from reviewing a multitude of incidents. Tips, hints and lessons learned are delivered in a stimulating forum that brings the subject alive. We recognise  people have to do their day jobs too, so it’s important not to overload them with more information than is needed to understand what their business continuity plan is and when it should be used.

Teed has developed and facilitated training and awareness sessions for their clients over many years using tried and tested methods and easy to use material. We recognise that people have limited time available so every session is designed to make full use of the allotted time. Courses are practical and interactive with participants encouraged to engage fully through role play, break-out sessions, group discussion and hands-on practical exercises.
