10 ways to Improve your Business Continuity Plans – tip #5 Use position titles

It is time to sit down, put pen to paper and write your business continuity plans. They should be straightforward: easy to read, easy to reference and easy to use.  These ten tips will help you to compose a practical plan that you will be proud to publish.

Tip #5 Use position titles rather than personal names of individuals

Include them and your plan becomes obsolete as soon as someone moves or leaves the organization. Use job titles in the plan. Highly variable data should be contained in the appendices.
