Scenarios, the Needhams method.

If the scenario used in an exercise does not capture the imagination of the client the whole Business Continuity process can become degraded.

  • Large scale infrastructure compromise (terrorism based)

  • Asbestos fire

  • Major third party supply chain failure

  • Management issues based on local elections

  • Contamination of an air conditioning system

  • Collapse of a dockyard wall
