Translating a Global Strategic BC Plan into a Tactical Plan for Evolving Asia

Speaker: Sallyanne Lerota, GE Capital

Managing business continuity for our network of Asian businesses often challenges the traditional norms of crisis management.  Almost daily events such as power outage or political unrest in India, rolling earthquakes in New Zealand, and nuclear threats in Japan have changed the way we view BCP in our region.  Gone are the days of a plan that is developed for an event we hope won’t happen, our approach has become increasingly “tactical” with a greater focus on the humanistic aspects of business continuity and emergency response, and practical solutions to ensure “business as usual” through regular disruption.
