IN HINDSIGHT - a compendium of business continuity case studies
Reviews and Feedback:
have found 'In Hindsight' to be an interesting, thought provoking and stimulating
collection of studies; and I have learned a great deal in reading it" - Phillip Wood MBE MSc FSyI CPP PSP AMBCI MInstLM
"I am constantly amazed by the number of executives who dismiss potential disasters as being too unlikely to consider, or who put off dealing with known risks because they have other things to worry about. This book is full of these people, and what happens in the case studies provides ample evidence to counter their complacency" - Martin Caddick LLB MBA MBCI MIOR
"This comprehensive research consistently portrays a set of common
factors that precedes each disaster – poor management, a lack of proper
planning and weak risk management practices. An eye-opener to all
those executives that fail to understand the importance of business
continuity and disaster recovery mechanisms." - Luciano Anastasi, MA MBCS CITP
"I wanted to send you a note of congratulations on your book, which I've just had the pleasure of reading. I think it is a very useful contribution to available literature and hopefully will lead to an appreciation of why BCM is essential" - Dr Kevin Pollock MBCI
"The cases of total business wipe-out disasters discussed are sobering. An easy to read style" - John Hakim MSc
"A very good compendium of case studies. Particularly found the chapter on SARS pandemic interesting and well researched. Good read"- Jordan
About the book:
What causes disasters?
Plan for the worst
Using these incidents as case studies, the authors demonstrate the potentially devastating results for organisations that have not planned for the worst. Crucially, the book proposes measures that could have helped to minimise the risks and consequences.
Learn from other people’s mistakes
By showing the potential repercussions of a badly thought-out disaster management and business continuity plan, this book helps you avoid making similar mistakes, reduce risks and enable faster recovery when things do go wrong.
