Improve Your Business Impact Analysis tip 10 – Participant Review

These tips will help the business continuity management professional focus their efforts on collecting valid data from credible sources.

Tip #10 Give participants a chance to review your analysis of the BIA results before submission

Participants need to verify the report. With additional time to think, people may have changed their mind on key conclusions, information could have been misconstrued, or simply overlooked.

Do not publish the entire BIA report in the business continuity plan.  A prioritized list of your business functions should be available somewhere in your plan; typically an appendix.

A business continuity plan based on a poorly researched or a phantom BIA will not have any relevance to the way that your organization operates.  A strong and focused business impact analysis will provide the data needed to evaluate business continuity strategies and build a credible plan.

Return tomorrow for discussion on Business Continuity Planning and the Incident Management System.
