A comprehensive health check or capability review by experienced Acumen consultants will confirm an organisation's preparedness and continuity capability and identify areas for improvement.

Scoping exercise
For organisations embarking on a business continuity programme, a scoping exercise, conducted by experienced Acumen consultants will clarify the extent of the work that needs to be carried out, identify budget costs, estimate project timescales and resource requirements and provide an outline project plan.

The scoping exercise will ensure that the business continuity programme is appropriate to the needs of the organisation and gets off to the right start.

Business impact analysis
A key element of the business management lifecycle, the business impact analysis identifies the financial and non-financial impacts that would be felt if the organisation were unable to operate normally due to a major disruptive incident or "disaster".

The business impact analysis will clarify the organisation's continuity objectives, justify the business continuity management strategy and identify specific solutions to meet the organisation's business requirements.

The risk assessment, in conjunction with the business impact analysis, enables senior management to make informed decisions regarding the business continuity strategies and solutions that are appropriate for the organisation.
