react, adapt and return

Continuity risk can rarely be avoided and the likelihood is difficult to decrease. Our best bet tends to be lowering the consequence, preparing for how to reduce the impact of the risk event.

The way we do this is through planning to strengthen key organisational capabilities:

  • to react effectively when the event occurs (contingency plan)
  • to adapt and do business differently when necessary (continuity plan)
  • to return to normal delivery in an orderly fashion following the crisis (recovery plan)
