I read a great post from Chris Brogan this week, about doing a sweep through all your open browser tabs. I don’t know about you but I am really guilty of this – I have so many browser tabs open, just waiting for me to come back and read/digest the material, or even just to comment.
So, in place of an RSS review, here is the stuff I have just sitting open and waiting;
- Does the web change everything?
- No, but it can facilitate new opportunities.
- We need to understand and be ready to leverage it – direct application, it is too late to think about how to use Social Media for Crisis Management when you are having the crisis.
- Washington Post – BP, Transocean, Haliburton blamed for Oil Spill
- Errors rooted in systemic failures and could happen again
- “a failure of management in which officials from all three firms ignored critical warning signs and failed to take precautions that might have delayed the completion of the well”
- Notes a near-miss event on a Transocean rig in the North Sea, 23 Dec 2009 – if only they had documented and learned from this event.
- The company said it was irrelevant to the Gulf of Mexico event – where have I heard that before?
- The Top 10 South African Business Continuity issues for 2011
- Written by ContinuitySA, a major vendor in that market
- Some apply generally, some a very specific to SA
- Glad to see that some of my clients prepared and exercised for a few of these 18 months ago.
- Impacts of recent snow on UK business may be over-hyped
- 47% of respondents say their business did not suffer at alll
- The Year in Risk
- Interesting article reminding us of all the “will never happen to me” incidents of 2010
- Not just the usual suspect;
- Mc Donalds Shrek cup recall
- Oprah’s ‘No Phone Zone’, and
- the Asteroid near-miss
- Ernst & Young’s Climate Change and Sustainability Framework
- So much more than accountants these days
- Generally with the big firms you still just get a kid with a cookbook
- Marrying Prevention and Resiliency, Balancing approaches to an uncertain terrorist threat
- Paper from RAND Homeland Security
- Interesting thesis about how to deal with threat uncertainty – a core issue for resilience thinking
- The concept of resiliency here is a rapid bounce back
- Creating a portfolio of prevention and mitigation initiatives
- Includes a chapter on how to evaluate such an approach
That is enough for one day, although there are still too many tabs open.
Happy reading, hope you find something interesting.
