How can Enterprise Business Continuity Planning minimize the effects of the Pandemic

January 21, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM


The pandemic.  It has changed our lives forever – and is still a threat that is lingering and will have to be completely extinguished.  As 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy were major incidents that severely impacted our region, they both had end-dates that could be reached as we worked together to settle things. As we approach the one year mark in a few months, with new ideas in the area of Business Continuity emerging, the pandemic is forcing everyone globally to do things differently.  In the area of Supply Chain Planning, the areas of manufacturing, transportation, shipping, receiving, staffing and every other factor has been affected.  This session will dive deeply into the issues that ISM members are facing today and provide ideas that can be used immediately to influence the decisions that you make and the organizations with whom you partner.  It’s not as simple as wearing a mask and washing your hands.  This pandemic has completely changed our lives.
