The latest business continuity news from around the world

American Institute of Architects publishes the ‘Architect’s Guide to Business Continuity’

The American Institute of Architects (AIA) has developed a new business continuity resource for firms operating in the architecture vertical.  The ‘Architect’s Guide to Business Continuity’ provides companies with ‘insights into managing staff, premises, technology, information, supply chains, stakeholders, and reputation so a firm can continue to provide services, generate revenue, and reduce the consequences of business interruption’.

Additionally, it provides insights on business aspects unique to building industry professions to help firms be aware of potential vulnerabilities to their business and provides considerations for expanding resilient design services. It also builds on best practices and incorporates lessons learned from firms adversely impacted during previous events.  

AIA EVP/Chief Executive Officer Robert Ivy, FAIA said: “This guide is meant to help firms be nimble during any kind of disruption, whether environmental or manmade. It also should support them in making informed decisions during economic uncertainties so they can be best poised to address the future.”
