Six Lessons Learned by a New BC Professional

Written by  Michael Barbara, CBCP Thursday, 22 November 2007 02:53

EDITOR’S NOTE:This article serves as a follow up to an article published in the winter 2004 edition (http://www.drj.com/articles/win04/1701-19.html) featuring the trials and tribulations of a new BC professional. A full year has passed since being employed as a full-time business continuity coordinator and, without a doubt, this position has led to many varied unexpected challenges. Nonetheless, many lessons have been learned. The process of creating and implementing the business continuity plan (BCP) for the corporate office was one of the most daunting challenges. Four months later, this first plan is now in place and copies have been properly distributed to all key individuals. Nevertheless, during this time-consuming and iterative process, many lessons learned definitely need to be shared.
