Help for those who struggle with keeping a BCP current!
Many of our customers understand the importance of maintaining their Business Continuity Plan, yet struggle to keep it up-to-date. The benefits of maintenance are easily defined:
- Ensures that the most current information is part of the plan
- Allows time for questions that were raised during the development phase of plan building to actually get answered
- Provides a forum for individuals with responsibility in the plan to provide feedback
So how do you keep on track with all of this maintenance? Task management!
Task Management Methods
As Business Continuity experts, we see many different methods of managing tasks. While everything from written to-do lists to Excel spreadsheets, to post-its and project management software technically work, some work much better than others. Whichever method you choose, at minimum you should be able to track at a description of the task, whose responsibility it is to complete it, and when it’s due.
Task Management in Shield
KingsBridge includes a Task Management feature in Shield. In addition to making life easier for our customers, it allows you to:
- Assign tasks to individuals throughout the organization
- Link tasks to specific sections or documents in Shield
- Mark tasks as Urgent
- View and sort summaries to monitor outstanding tasks
- Send (optional) notifications to the task creator when tasks are completed
One of the helpful things about this feature is that it integrates directly into your Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery planning software. As a result, you can easily navigate between updating your plan and assigning tasks. The whole purpose of task management is to help keep you organized, and we have done just that by giving you one place where you can manage all of your Business Continuity plan needs.
