Effective Continuity of Operations (COOP) planning requires strong stakeholder engagement, consistent training, and deep, hands-on involvement. More often than not, it also usually involves people from multiple organizations or divisions. For these reasons and a litany of others, preparedness planning will simply not be successful if implemented in a vacuum.

This challenge is the reason why BOLDplanning clients across the country are choosing to conduct advanced COOP workshops. They know the importance of well-facilitated sessions geared towards the practical application of planning principles, and understand the importance of identifying solutions to their unique situation(s). They also know that doing so on a regular basis, i.e., once per quarter, semi-annually, or even once per year, lends to creating and nurturing a true culture of preparedness organization wide.
