Developing Results Continuity Plan  

Results Continuity Plan

This chapter introduces a new concept of 'Results Continuity Plan' (RCP). This is part of the Execution Blueprint, whereby an organization has to have a Results Continuity Team, which can come into action, wherever there is a serious threat to the results, due to major change in the assumptions. RCP also looks at 3 or 4 most probable scenarios and lays out the possible approach to respond to the same.


Developing Results Continuity Plan


Enterprise Results Continuity Plan (RCP) is developed by a central RCP champion (typically head of Execution Discipline), by co-ordinating with individual functions and process-owners. The RCP champion should report directly to the execution-team and works with CFO or CEO. The first step is to lay the foundation with Business Scenario Response Matrix, which also represent RCP strategy. This is followed by the detailing each business scenario, the early warning signals pointing to a given scenario, the response steps to be taken, the check-points for deciding roll-forward or roll-backward plan. Unlike a BCP, there can be many more possible business scenarios for which the response has to be made. The smart way to create you RCP is to create some common broad-base response against wide range of business scenarios
