Weekly Wrap – 22nd May 2014

Hi I am Tom McLeod, Co-Founder of McLeod Governance.

This is what I would be thinking about this week.

Contingency Planning for Flesh Eating Zombies

If you were reading the newspapers closely over the last week  you may have come across an article that discussed the contingency planning by the US military in the event of the attack of – wait for it – flesh eating zombies.

Yes you heard me correctly.

The US military has contingency plans for flesh eating zombies – what it would do and what the population would do in the event of such a catastrophe.

Now before you get alarmed, or unnecessarily alarmed about this fact, please note that the US military has issued a statement saying that it is not a specific contingency plan rather one that is used for training purposes.

And it is that which raises the spectre of today’s Weekly Wrap.

Scenario Development Approaches

What do you use as your scenarios in the development of your contingency plans?

Are the scenarios that you use real world and likely to happen or are they closer on the continuum to the US military’s use of zombie attacks?

The question is important.

If the scenarios are unrealistic then the application of the contingency plans may not make any sense.

If the scenarios are too realistic people may confuse them with the real thing.

I hesitant a guess with regards to the zombie attack no one confused that with reality.   At least not yet.
