The paper "Business Processes of the British Red Cross" is a wonderful example of an assignment on management. First of all, it is vital to understand the business and services processes of the British Red Cross and then develop a Business Impact Analysis and Stakeholder analysis keeping in mind all internal and external factors & forces having an impact on the business processes of the British Red Cross. This analysis report has been developed under the preview of Business Continuity Management. A thorough understanding of Business Continuity Management has been described in this report.
This report includes the major four critical business processes whose continuation is important during the disruption. On the basis of the data and facts available on the websites and other literary sources, I have developed 10 generic questions that will help me to elicit information regarding the critical processes of the British Red Cross. A Brief Introduction about the British Red Cross British Red Cross is a humanitarian organization that has been led by its large volunteer and staff base. It is one of the world's largest NGO’ s and serving the society in all possible ways during major crises and disruptions like Tsunami, Earthquakes, Wars, Diseases, etc.
which is working for humanitarian motives with aiming for “ caring for people in crisis” . While helping and caring for people, it does not matter for them that what is the religion, nationality of this person. They will help whoever you are and wherever you are. International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement had been started in 1863 by Henry Dunant. Since its inception, it has worked during the war between France and Persia, the first and Second World War, the gulf crisis, the Hungarian revolution, etc.
In the UK it provides services like health and social care, education, refugee camps, first aid, and other emergency services. British Red Cross and British Red Crescent provide these services to its vast global network of around 20 million volunteers and staff base. It organizes different fundraising programs for generating money power for its operation. British Red Cross and British Red Crescent work under the seven fundamental principles like – Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary services, Unity, and Universality.
