When you look at something, you have an impact on it. That’s the observer effect.
How many times have you heard business people talk about their DNA – meaning their business culture or something similar?
As a business continuity manager, you are likely to be involved in getting your colleagues to take business continuity seriously and ensure that their own departments will continue to function even in adverse conditions.
It’s always good to show how business continuity can be a net profit generator or produce other positive and measurable advantages.
Sounds obvious? When you’re knee deep in metrics, reports, and audits, it’s not always easy to remember that without people doing their jobs, nearly every organisation will rapidly cease to function.
Ideally, business continuity means no discontinuity.
