Oz’s Business Continuity Tip of the Month : “How normal is normal?”

When putting together our business continuity strategies and plans, a common assumption is that the ultimate objective is to return to normal following a major disruption.

Oz’ Business Continuity Blog : “One day at a time”

This week saw a significant milestone in the Osborne household and, regrettably, one of my worst fears realised. Yes, my younger son was officially proclaimed to be taller than me!
