T. Rowe Price’s 2019 Adapt to Change

Cyrus Green, T. Rowe Price

“Don’t let the grass grow under one’s feet.” T. Rowe Price (TRP) has experienced a growing client preference to engage online or by mobile phone. This led to the decision for TRP to close 1 of 3 operational sites. This decision brings the following manageable risk: Operational, Business Continuity, Incident Response, and Vendor. TRP traditionally relies on three-sites to manage contingency by shifting work to alternate sites. In the case that either sites are impacted by severe weather or unexpected loss of work site. TRP could experience an impact to meeting client service level agreements. This is an opportunity for TRP to share and identify the best practices and standard operating procedures with our conference business partners and review contingency escalation protocols, contingency strategies, review of critical vendors, etc.

Relieving Stress for Non-Typical Responders

Dr. Laura Cathcart, University of Maryland, Baltimore
