A PRACTICAL APPROACH TO ENTERPRISE RESTART & RECOVERY PLANNING
Since the beginning of the pandemic, enterprises of all types are coping with emergency response with impacts up to and including complete shutdown of operations. While the pandemic required many businesses to close their doors, those that remain are looking at restarting their business, and that may require them to rethink their business models to make them work in the “new normal.” This course aims to provide general guidance and frameworks to help small to medium size organizations approach their recovery plans.
