5 Stages of Disaster Recovery – A Framework for Strengthening Your Organization
Every organization right now is in a different place than they were a few weeks ago. Some organizations have quickly assessed their situation, made decisions and begun execution. Others have barely begun to adjust to their new environment. Although we're all moving at various speeds and trajectories, we are all moving through the same recovery framework: React, Assess, Stabilize, Recover, Reimagine. Knowing where you are in the process and what you should be doing can be critical to your businesses success.
