Summary
  • "Earthquakes, fires, mainframe crashes, hacker attacks, terrorism ... Whether you operate in the private sector or the public sector, failure to prepare for disruptive events can cripple your organization when disaster strikes and even endanger its very survival. Avoiding Disaster provides the contingency planning methods managers must have to cope with catastrophes - natural disasters, man-made events, or technological calamities alike."
  • "In these uncertain times, it's especially important that you be ready for whatever comes. In the event of a disaster, managers must engage policy directives that are clear, unequivocal, and directed for maximum beneficial effect. As case studies within the book illustrate, quick, decisive, and well-reasoned management is the single most important ingredient for survival in a crisis. This resource offers expert guidance and thoughtful advice about planning for and dealing with worst-case scenarios, ensuring that your business or organization will survive no matter what happens."--Jacket
