Product Description

Cost-efficient business contingency and continuity planning for a post-9/11 and Katrina world


Disasters can happen. Contingency plans are necessary. But how detailed and expensive do your contingency and continuity plans really need to be?

Employing a thoroughly practical approach, Business Continuity Strategies: Protecting Against Unplanned Disasters, Third Edition provides a proven methodology for implementing a realistic and cost-efficient business contingency program. Kenneth Myers--an internationally recognized contingency planning specialist--shows corporate leaders how to prepare a logical "what if" plan that would enable an organization to retain market share, service customers, and maintain cash flow if a disaster occurs.

Completely updated throughout to reflect lessons learned from 9/11 and hurricanes Katrina and Wilma, Business Continuity Strategies, Third Edition helps cost-conscious senior management:
* Establish a corporate contingency program policy and strategy that ensures timely completion of a plan, with minimal disruption to operations
* Minimize plan development costs
* Understand the importance of conducting briefings to communicate the proper mindset before the program development process begins
* Save time and money by avoiding a consultant's traditional approach of extensive information-gathering that contributes little to the development of practical solutions, but much in the way of consultant fees

Addressing countless hypothetical disaster scenarios doesn't make good business sense. Business Continuity Strategies, Third Edition helps companies focus on what is necessary to survive a natural catastrophe, workplace violence, or a terrorist attack.
