Improve your Business Continuity Strategies tip 5 – Be concise

These ten tips will hone your skills at devising business continuity strategies for your organization.

Tip# 5 Present concise and specific recommendations to senior management

Recommendations must include:

  • a gap analysis (where are we now)
  • clear  consequences for meeting continuity expectations (where will we be)
  • a basic project plan for implementing the recommended strategy (how to get there)
  • a risk assessment for your recommended strategy
  • budget estimates
  • resource requirements
  • an estimate of the implementation time

When making your presentation to senior management, be prepared to offer some real alternatives to your recommendations.   Ensure the agreed options are approved by the executive management.
