Adaptive Continuity Planning: What the Industry Can Learn From Case Studies in Higher Education
National Center for Campus Public Safety (NCCPS), 2019
In this webinar, Sarah J. Powell, director of emergency management at Temple University, and Emma Stocker, director of emergency management at Portland State University, share how they have each borrowed from the adaptive continuity model and customized it for their campus. Continuity planning for higher education has thus far tracked closely to both the business and government sector models. The traditional business continuity approach, especially those favored by the corporate sector, encourage comprehensive data collection and time-consuming dependency mapping. But a new model, adaptive continuity, is beginning to gain some traction. An adaptive approach encourages continuity planners to borrow from the lessons of agile and lean methodologies and to take a more iterative, feedback-focused, and streamlined tack.
