None of us wants to think about a disaster striking our business or major project. However, every business large or small needs a business continuity plan to help recover more quickly from disasters should they occur. Contingency Planning is for anyone in engineering, technical, project management, leadership or general management positions.
Businesses need a detailed plan for operational continuity to recover should a catastrophic event occur. A contingency plan or business continuity plan includes an emergency plan with detailed execution steps and responsibilities identified.
Potential issues must be identified and action plans developed before an emergency situation occurs. Unfortunately, it is too late once the event has happened! Most businesses today have only rudimentary emergency plans for evacuations, etc. but do not have the necessary contingency or business recovery plans in place.
Having such a plan could not only save your business or major project, but it could also make you the supplier of choice for certain customers since they know you have plans in place to meet their needs in the event of a disaster.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
