Whether you experience good times or bad times, everything is an opportunity to learn and grow. Too often we seem to wear blinders and trudge full speed ahead hoping we reach our final goal, which if all goes according to plan – and it rarely does – we achieve our aspirations. But when we get to the destination we often forget what we might have learned along the way, or worse, paid no heed to anything as we moved forward and thus, don’t end up learning anything from our experience.

We’re happy to announce that we now have updated Business Continuity Management (BCM) document templates available at http://www.stone-road.com. We’ve removed the older 2003 versions, and now have everything in a 2010 version.
We are happy to announce that ebook / Kindle versions of all books by StoneRoad founder A.Alex Fullick, are now available from Amazon.com (and other Global Amazon sites).
