Book Description

Smart business managers do not ask the question IF a disaster happens, will we be ready? They ask WHEN a disaster happens will we be ready? As businesses rely on longer supply chains for physical goods and offshore outsource operations for service delivery and back office administration, the threats against business continuity increase dramatically. Principles and Practices of Business Continuity: Tools and Techniques explores the activities that ensure critical business functions remain available (during and in the aftermath of a disaster) to customers, suppliers, regulators and others that must have access to critical business functions. This is a comprehensive reference that will ensure the reader is in a position to engage in all of the activities associated with the development, delivery or maintenance of a business continuity program. There are several twists and turns along the path to a comprehensive and well-functioning business continuity plan. Those charged with this function will find this book an excellent reference to ease the task and ensure as few loose ends as possible are left. The author is considered the thought-leader in the field and has over 30 years experience teaching business continuity management in over 20 countries.

5.0 out of 5 stars Business Continuity Planning at its best! Oct. 28 2010
By Sherry - Published on Amazon.com
This book should be a staple in your library if you are responsible for business continuity and DR planning at your company. I was new to the field so I really appreciated how the book was layed out and how easy it was to transfer the information to my plan. There are a lot of applicable practices, tools, cheatsheets, etc that you can easily incorporate into your plan. I was very pleased with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars From the Publisher March 4 2008
By P. J Rothstein - Published on Amazon.com
Jim Burtles is one of the business continuity professionals I most admire because of his long-standing commitment to the business continuity industry, and his extensive contributions to the profession over his broad career.

So, as a publisher (and as publisher of this book) I was thrilled when I first saw Jim's manuscript. There are not many people who could have written this book - and far fewer who could have written it nearly as well.

This book is an ideal combination of the practice of business continuity - standards, best practices, global perspective - and, the process of business continuity - planning, development, implementation, and so forth. Jim presents a clear picture of not just how to do what needs to be done, but why. By striking a balance between theory and practice, I believe Jim's approach makes the reader's job much easier and more effective.

There are other books on business continuity - I have edited or published many of them - but Jim Burtles' book is my favorite. With the included CD-ROM containing extensive tools and resources, this book is a no-brainer for anyone who wants to understand business continuity management, is about to embark on implementing a business continuity program, or is looking to bring an existing business continuity program up to world-class best practice.
