Effectively Managing your Business When Disaster Strikes
Smooth sailing seems to be something usually only relegated to fantasy; the idea of things always going according to plan is wonderful, but unfortunately is just an idea. Life can be a rollercoaster of twists, turns and surprises…some welcomed, others not so much. What this means is that it’s fine to expect the best all the time, but it’s necessary to also prepare for the worst.
In business, not having a plan for when the worst may strike, could be very costly. Taking the time to create a business continuity plan in the event of a major issue will help to minimize the overall affects that issue has on your business. The particular plan which your business makes will vary depending on varying factors based on the specificity of your company/industry, but every plan should take the following into consideration:
“1. Assess your risks. Know the threats that could damage your business, and determine how they might affect you.
2. Prioritize business functions. Decide the order in which certain business operations will be restored in the event of an interruption.
3. Develop prevention and mitigation strategies. Come up with strategies around the most important functions to prevent and mitigate the types of disasters you may encounter.”
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Taking the necessary precautions and being prepared before a problem arises is the best way to stay in control and keep your company on track in order to get past that bump in the road.
