Abraham Lincoln is credited with having said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.” In short, planning is fundamental to getting tasks completed and preparing for the unexpected.
But what happens when pre-planning falls through? What then? That’s where Plan B comes into play – the backup to the first line of defense.
In the business continuity sphere, alternative strategies are the catastrophic equivalent of Plan B, requiring “outside the box” methodologies to come out on the other side of disaster unscathed.
KETCHConsulting alternative site and recovery execution is precisely what business continuity managers need when Plan A runs off course or falls through. However, unlike other business continuity consulting organizations, our services don’t stop at B, but go the extra mile. Indeed, KETCHConsulting offers as many as 18 different recovery alternatives, leaving organization leaders’ options open. Here are some of the other ways KETCHConsulting services stretch organizational leadership’s recourse:
- Detailing pros and cons of each solution
- Technology support
- Emergency response plan development
- Family response plan development
- Disaster recovery plan components
- Awareness and training
- Disaster recovery strategy development
- Establishment of alternative locations
And Alternative Strategies can be for IT (DR) or BCP (Workgroup). At KETCHConsulting, alternative strategies are a best practice – and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
