We believe that there is no substitute for practical, hands-on, real-world experience.

What We Do

Acumen is an independent consultancy practice, specialising in business continuity management and related disciplines, including crisis management, risk management and information security management. Our focus is on delivering high quality consultancy services, not selling recovery services, insurance or software products. Our independence enables us to offer truly impartial advice.

Our approach to business continuity management has been developed and honed over many years, working with hundreds of clients across a broad range of industry sectors.

We recognise that all of our clients differ in terms of their business operations, their business continuity experience and knowledge, and their specific requirements for support. Rather than adopting a ‘one size fits all’ approach, we provide a flexible service, tailored to the needs of the particular client.

Our innovative approach is based on extensive, practical, ‘real world’ experience. Whilst our methodology follows best-practice guidelines (such as ISO 22301/22313 and the Business Continuity Institute’s ‘Good Practice Guidelines’), most importantly, it is geared towards developing the client’s business continuity capability, rather than merely writing a business continuity plan.

Acumen has the skills and experience to help your organisation to implement effective and workable strategies, solutions and plans, resulting in a robust, fit for purpose business continuity capability.

Are you after some ‘shelf-ware’ that ticks a few audit boxes, or a robust, fit for purpose, cost-effective business continuity capability that actually makes your business more resilient?

Can We Help?

We can help with the ‘shelf-ware’ if that’s what you really want, but our real interest lies in helping our clients to develop their business continuity capability.

If that accords with your thinking, call us on +44 (0)1386 834455 or email us at info@acumen-bcp.co.uk to see how we can help.

What Our Clients Say

I was impressed by Acumen’s innovative and creative ideas in how to produce business continuity plans and more importantly, how to change people’s perceptions within the organisation in terms of business continuity needs.
