Most Forgotten Things When Building a Disaster Recovery Plan
Every IT manager knows the importance of having an effective disaster recovery (DR) plan. Organizations without an adequate plan may find themselves out of business quickly after experiencing a major disaster. One of the most forgotten things is: Creating a plan that depends on too few qualified personnel. It is not uncommon for businesses to create a DR plan that depends on just one IT person with a pager. What if that person is unavailable for some reason? You need to identify and cross-train a pool of employees that are capable of responding in an emergency.
Creating a Custom Training Plan for Your Organization
Make sure you have clearly defined outcomes for the learning—and identify who is supposed to be going through training and what kind of training.
First, we’ll explain how to conduct a needs analysis by researching and identifying training needs throughout your company. Taking this step is the best way to get your training off on the right foot by immediately saving your company from wasting valuable time, money, and energy on unnecessary training.
Next, we’ll look at how to determine which affected employees will need which specific training. Certain training, such as “introduction to Dynamics AX”, applies to all employees. But training, such as “Financial I Dynamics AX 2012” on specific software applies only to employees who use those modules. It’s important to know who needs what so that we can customize your program accordingly.
After we’ve identified what and who, we’ll show you how to train the different user-groups (eg key-users, end-users etc.) Furthermore, you need to know your audience for each training session in order to further tailor the style and substance of your program. Once we’ve gathered all this information, we’re ready to draw up a detailed blueprint for your training program.
