The BIA Insult

So, I came across this quote the other day that someone was using in a presentation about the importance of conducting a Business Impact Analysis (BIA):

“A business continuity plan that is not predicated on or guided by the results of a business impact analysis (BIA) is, at best, guesswork, is incomplete, and may not function as it should during an actual recovery.”

Really?

I understand what they mean and I appreciate this message given to business continuity planners, but, I would hesitate saying this in a board room.  It may not be wise suggesting to the CEO and other senior executives that they do not know their business well enough to tell you what is important to them and what business processes are necessary to keep their organization solvent.
