"KETCHConsulting's interactive education approach provides hands-on experience in preparing for, conducting and reporting the results of a Business Impact Analysis. The class further discusses how to use the output of the BIA in an ongoing manner to consistently maintain and improve the organization's BCM," the conference page reads. "Understanding that a successful BIA must be conducted from the Business Process point of view, this class focuses on how to gather Business Process data from the personnel executing the enterprise's actual business functions."

  • Justify, initiate and plan a BIA project    
  • Gain Executive and End User buy-in    
  • Perform data collection    
  • Validate data collected using workshops – peer review of survey results
