“A business continuity plan sounds scary, but it allows you to do much more than just run a business—you have to come out of being the ‘Chief Everything Officer’ and truly become the CEO.” – Adam Moore
An emergency is bound to happen in any organization, whether it’s a Fortune 500 company or a small, diverse business. For any business, preparation is better than cure.
