When Disaster Strikes, What’s Your Plan?

In a world that saturated with competition, staying ahead of the curve is vital.

Most business plans cover the same principals:

  • Are you operating to your highest standards?
  • Are you branding yourself in a way that attracts the right customer?
  • Have you perfected your value proposition?
  • Are you offering the very best that your customers deserve?
  • Have you thought about your USPs, the things that make you different?

Then you start to look at the more practical tick boxing exercises:

  • Are you using the best systems?
  • Are you as autonomous as we can be?
  • Are you operating to a high standard at all times?

Usually, it is a yes to all the above.

Fantastic.

Have you thought about would happen if your server stopped working? What happened if you experienced a power cut? Or a fire? Or if you get hacked and lose control of your network? What do you have in place for these eventualities? Most small business owners sadly don’t have an answer. And that’s a real concern. Considering 40% of businesses wouldn’t bounce back from a disaster situation.

Having a smooth running, highly efficient business does mean all the deliverables we mentioned earlier. But your adaptability is incredibly vital. How you as an organisation can react and overcome changes in your circumstance. If your network is unsecured, you’re leaving yourself and your company wide open to risk. If it is is frequently sluggish or unreliable, this is going to have an impact on both your employee’s productivity and your customer’s satisfaction and will likely end up in a loss of business to your competitors.
