The construction of a BCP (Business Continuity Plan) is a good guide to mobilizing energies and interests related to unforeseeable risks – ranging from the unexpected need to partially or completely shutdown a warehouse to that of inability to use a specific mode of transport.
Our feedback suggests that BCPs encounter three main difficulties:
- Expression of objectives in defining recovery time to that of a normal situation during a transition period.
- Involvement of logistics providers in the process – since much of the success of the process depends on it.
Involvement of senior management in these topics.
