The BIA (Business Impact Analysis) is not just all about satisfying management requirements. Its most important goal is to provide your organization (business, hospital, or agency) with a solid data foundation upon which you can build a meaningful, comprehensive Business Continuity Plan (BCP).

In Building a Business Impact Analysis (BIA) Process: A Hands-on Blueprint, Barry Cardoza uses his teaching and lecturing skills to clearly lead you through a concise, step-by-step blueprint for building not just another "window dressing document," but an entire, systematic, functioning BIA Process.

He shows you how to:

  • Obtain the all-important Executive Support that gives you your analysis authority.
  • Involve stakeholders in the planning process, and obtain their honest, meaningful input
  • Establish the goals, and "Big Picture" scope of your entire BIA process
  • Focus on whata (TM)s important, and not get side-tracked by minutia
  • Collect, and then validate your data
  • Analyze your collected data, and produce a concise, valuable document, one that is a cornerstone piece in the entire organizational Business Model
  • Keep your BIA current, dynamic and meaningful

A FREE, accompanying CD-ROM contains:

  • A flow chart of BIA considerations and action items
  • Sample communications and forms
  • Customized example of Spreadsheet approach to data collection and analysis
  • Customized example of a Database approach to data collection and analysis

A good BIA-based BCP that is team-driven, flexible and useful, today and tomorrow, is what works Whatever your job accountability is in your organization: management, business continuity, risk or loss prevention, crisis preparedness and response, or education & training a " this is your designated, hands-on guidebook


Major Impacts And Plate Tectonics

Neville Price presents a major breakthrough in our understanding of the subject of plate tectonics in this new book. In this ambitious look at the importance of impacts of objects from space on the earth, he challenges the fundamentals of the theory on which geoscience has rested for the past 25 years.
In the latter half of the 20th century, earth-scientists gradually became aware of the scale and effect of bombardment by meteoric material on Earth. Prior to 1950 only a handful of small craters were generally accepted as resulting from impact events. Now "certain" impacts number around 150, with four such features measuring over 100km in diameter.
Neville Price evaluates the mechanisms that give rise to plate movements. Generally, such plates move slowly at about the rate-of-growth of human nails and their tracks are usually smooth, gentle curves . Major Impacts and Plate Tectonics presents evidence to show that impacts can cause significant and dramatic changes in track, which cannot be explained by current theories of plate tectonics. The book also demonstrates that such major impact events often coincide with the development of continental flood basalts and oceanic plateau basalts and frequently coincide with major stratigraphic stage boundaries and toxicity, which in turn can be associated with periods of extinction. It concludes that geological history comprises periods of relatively orderly, evolutionary change in Earth and life-forms punctuated by catastrophic changes induced by major impacts that reset the evolutionary clock.


Economic Evaluation Of Climate Change Impacts

RRP $491.99

This volume deals with the multifaceted and interdependent impacts of climate change on society from the perspective of a broad set of disciplines. The main objective of the book is to assess public and private cost of climate change as far as quantifiable, while taking into account the high degree of uncertainty. It offers new insights for the economic assessment of a broad range of climate change impact chains at a national scale. The framework presented in the book allows consistent evaluation including mutual interdependencies and macroeconomic feedback. This book develops a toolbox that can be used across the many areas of climate impact and applies it to one particular country: Austria.
