Abstract

Disasters will occur and businesses must be prepared to respond as best they can. These businesses need a detailed plan explaining what to do in an emergency incident. This will be their business continuity plan or crisis management technique. Crisis Management is "a systematic attempt by organizational members with external stake-holders to avert crisis or to effectively manage those that do occur." This project provides a look into the business continuity plans of four schools, Becker College, Clark University, Worcester College, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, in the Worcester area.
