BCM / DR: Managing a Schedule

When planning our various BCM/DR components, you need to build and maintain some level of a schedule.  If you don’t have a schedule built for let’s say the BIA or the development of a Crisis Communications Plan, then Executives will never know when to expect the results and participants will continually ‘put you off’.  Continue reading
