Contingency Planning Confidence Based On Knowledge

Written by  Laurie Taylor-Hamm Wednesday, 21 November 2007 23:25

You did your homework. Your contingency plan is well written, up-to-date, accurate, and tested. Now you can sit back and relax with confidence that your business will recover quickly and survive any disastrous occurrence. The knowledge you gained in preparing your plan is extensive and in any case, knowledge is power. Knowledge and power usually lead to confidence, right? Survey Goals Find out how knowledgeable the decision-makers are regarding effective contingency planning. Identify if confidence about surviving a disaster varied as a function of whether or not they had a contingency plan in place, and whether or not that plan was written. Identify whether confidence levels are affected by completing a detailed questionnaire about specific contingency planning.
