In the wake of misconduct, we can blame it on the CEO, but the Crisis Management Team has lots to consider

When the proverbial hits the fan at an organisation, the reputational fall out can be massive. The media, stakeholders, and regulators circle like a shark with the taste of blood, while the organisation must respond and fast. It is likely that the reputational damage is already done, and the trust of stakeholders is lost, but […]

Keep your eye on the PRISE

We are well and truly entrenched in a COVID world. Our lives, livelihoods and businesses have changed. We have re-evaluated our values and are living daily by numbers, updates and stories.

Anatomy of a Superhero

Holy Bruce Wayne, Batman. In the last 75 years there have been 14 Batman movies. That’s almost as frequent as the Olympic Games! Don’t forget Superman, Spiderman, other individual superheroes, the Avengers and Justice League franchises, and the list goes on.

National Retailer

One of Australia’s largest retailers across the outdoor, sports and auto sectors is currently using Battleground to manage their business impact analyses and resilience planning. This is being extended to the mobile application and incident management in late 2020 and through 2021.

Given the large reach of the company, Battleground was selected for their BIAs given the ability to run workshops virtually, quickly and online. Participants leave with a business continuity plan after only a one hour workshop – complete and ready to use.

As the system is rolled out, this will translate to a mobile application with the participant’s plans ready to use.

Electricity Infrastructure Company

A State-wide manager of electricity infrastructure in Australia uses Battleground for all of their business continuity management needs: Business Impact analyses, BCP and crisis plans, incident management and simulations – online and via the Battleground Response Mobile Application.

Using the full potential of Battleground, this client has used the system to manage incidents ranging from the death of a contractor through to cyber security incidents and COVID-19.

The company’s crisis team is initiated via the automatic conference calling where they then follow the checklists provided in the mobile application. All activity logs for the team are captured online in Battleground.

For business continuity, the company’s BIAs are performed in Battleground, with paper-based plans automatically populated after each one – before being translated into an online, app-based version.

Global Co-Working Company

A global co-working company uses Battleground for all of their simulations globally.

Using the Battleground Simulations module, all of the company’s exercises and simulations for security, emergency and crisis management are run online via in-person and virtual meetings. Participants login to Battleground and are delivered all their simulation materials in real-time via their own secure portal and set of inboxes.

Battleground is being extended to include the company’s BCPs, crisis and emergency plans and for use as the company’s incident management system globally.

The system has been used online and in person in the USA, South America, Europe, The Middle East, Australia and Asia.
