Your Family is Your Business
Part of the tragedy of the Hurricane Katrina Aftermath is missing children. The flood waters destroyed pictures. Tearful, panicked mothers attempting to describe a precious little one. What would a parent do? No image for a missing-child posting.
Nothing for the milk cartons.
To find the little one fastest a picture is best.
Smart managers know that disaster can strike a business much as the breached levees destroyed New Orleans' families. Many businesses, especially those with an international scope, use the ISO 9000 certification as a template for recovery.
ISO 9000 standards are used not only to produce a product or service of consistent quality -- but also as a framework to replicate an enterprise.
If the building burns down, the employees have a 'business picture' to rebuild.
Store the plan two ways: atoms and bytes. The physical paper document is off-site and, most important, web based. Do this with your loved ones: your business; your family.
Today, email and send pictures of your family to a loved one.
And cc me. Jack@Yoest.org (Yes, it's worth the spamming I'll get.)
A picture can help get your business back, and maybe your child.
