40 hard-won business continuity lessons from the NZ and Japan quakes





Rob Slade and I wrote an article capturing forty business continuity lessons arising from the massive earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan. It has just been published in EDPACS and, thanks to the generosity of the publishers Taylor and Francis, it is available as a free PDF download.
Aside from the specific lessons concerning resilience, crisis management, disaster recovery, and contingency management, our article illustrates a broader point, namely that it is not necessary to experience disasters first-hand in order to learn from them.  If you are fortunate enough not to live and work in an earthquake-prone area, there are still valid lessons here to help you survive other natural and unnatural disasters.
