Proper business continuity planning is critical to keeping your business running through any issues that arise such as supply chain problems, IT system crashes, power failures, natural disasters, etc. Business continuity plans help companies prepare for disastrous events including everything from a tornado ripping through the top floor of your office tower or simply a power outage cause by a fender bender in the parking lot.
One of the greatest sources for inspiration and instructions on preparing your company for a possible disaster is business continuity magazines. Business continuity magazines are full from cover to cover with useful information that can help you plan correctly and learn how to put your plan into action should an emergency occur.
Business continuity magazines provide you with insight into other companies and how they handle their own business continuity planning. You can get a lot of great ideas from business continuity magazines that will help you design a plan that will help your company to succeed in the wake of any disaster no matter how great or small.
The Business Continuity Institute was created fourteen years ago to allow individual members support and guidance from other practitioners of business continuity. There are presently more than four thousand members of the Business Continuity Institute in more than eighty-five different countries.
The Business Continuity Institute publishes business continuity magazines six times each year. Their magazines contain papers and articles on management of business continuity and circulate around to all of the members of the Business Continuity Institute, partnership contacts and any other registered readers who may be interested. Digital versions of these business continuity magazines are available in PDF form on the Internet.
You can also help others by contributing your own articles to business continuity magazines. You can write articles that describe the process of designing a continuity plan from a first hand point of view. Business owners in several different industries will be educated and motivated by your articles.
Business continuity magazines work toward your success in more than one way. You can take information from them to apply to your own business continuity planning. On the other hand, you can give back by supplying helpful information by either submitting your work to established magazines or starting your own business continuity magazine. You can make a name for yourself in the industry as a reputable and trustworthy business that takes care of others in the industry by providing educational information that contributes to the success of their business continuity plan.
If all business owners work together to share information and knowledge on what they have learned in their own experiences, then all businesses will have the tools to have a plan that will be ready to put into action if the need should ever arise.
