Continuously developing this pioneering advisory practice PRIORITY further offers consulting services in Crisis Management as well as the overall development of Corporate Resilience.
In parallel, PRIORITY represents the internationally recognized Business Continuity Management Institute (BCMI) and offers certified training seminars at the level of Business Continuity Planner, Specialist, Expert and Lead Auditor in Greece as well as the wider region. Furthermore, specialized educational programs are available for Crisis Management and Corporate Resilience. Having the most specialized consulting team in the field and leveraging many years of know-how gained through the completion of demanding projects in large organizations (in the financial sector, in shipping, energy, industry etc.), PRIORITY is ideally suited to understand the needs of each organization and to help it strengthen its operational resilience in the best possible way, with lean and effective solutions.
Business Continuity, defined as the capability of an organization to protect its core functions from catastrophic events and promptly bring them back to the desired levels, is certainly the first line of defence in resilience and ISO 22301 is the undisputed guide to developing this critical capability. The operational management of a disruption, however, is only the first step. When circumstances threaten a firm’s reliability and reputation, it is necessary to make strategic decisions at the highest level often with little available time and incomplete information. Then, it is necessary to have well-developed skills in Crisis Management, and the BS 11200 British Standard offers useful and practical advice on exiting a crisis.
At the same time, the increasing complexity of modern markets coupled with the regular emergence of asymmetric competition require the wider and systematic shielding of a business. At this point, the notion of Resilience extends beyond the extraordinary management of singular events requiring a holistic approach that needs to be integrated in day-to-day operations. In this effort, valuable guidance is offered by the ISO 22316 International Standard.
