Design, Implementation and Testing of Contingency and Business Continuity Plans
Entrepreneurs are aware of the enormous effort it took to take the initial step in creating the company; from zero to one; from the idea to the first reality; to win the first project and client.
Likewise, the long road from 1 to 10 requires courage and high exposure to factors that are not always under control. Investments, hiring of staff, negotiations with clients; all of this is required It is highly satisfying to watch your idea grow, your dreams, your project come true.
Should we leave all our hard work to the mercy of unforeseen circumstances?
Is your company and business safe, or only insured?
As you design and execute growth and expansion strategies with new businesses and clients, PACKTUM helps you guarantee what you have already achieved.
PACKTUM complements networking, the network of contacts that companies create in their ecosystems, through natural and necessary alliances, based on «gentlemen’s agreements», in which the word “competition” is transformed into a specific collaboration that respects an ethical code and implicit professionality. Those are spontaneous and temporary relationships based on the phrase “Today for you, tomorrow for me”.
Thanks to these agreements, specific deficiencies are corrected, either in terms of production capacity, available raw materials, or logistical setbacks.
PACKTUM responds to a situation of greater criticality when the damage goes beyond 50% of its productive capacity, for a time equal to or greater than one year. Such a situation puts seriously at risk a lifetime of hard work and projections.
Is a Contingency Plan necessary?
PREVENT possible scenarios, SECURE the company, guarantee the CONTINUITY of supplies and be a RELIABLE supplier to customers.
If this is the profile of your company, a good Business Contingency and Continuity Plan is undoubtedly the right instrument.
The awareness of the Property, the Board of Directors or the Management team, is the obligatory first step to implement a strategic planning that includes a Business Continuity Plan.
- We jointly analyze for which scenarios we want to prepare the organization.
- Incidents affecting your company only, in contrast to incidents impacting on the industry as a whole, resulting in a different approach in both cases.
- Sudden and unpredictable unforeseen events; others we can anticipate.
- Incidents of diverse impact.
An intensive exercise, done as a team, resulting in the so-called Contingency Matrix, whereby industries and companies are reflected.
A good Contingency Plan so that NOTHING untoward happens
Nothing untoward and everything smooth.
The real value of PREVENTION goes unnoticed when it is possible to absorb unforeseen events, minimizing internal damages, maintaining industrial activity. CORRECTION is more visible and subject to environmental assessment, but ANTICIPATION is much more effective.
With the help of the client, PACKTUM starts in an abstract manner, moves onto the specific phase, and finally reaches the operational stage. PRAGMATIC Contingency Plans, with your feet on the ground.

¿Who does WHAT and WHERE?
Machines break down, processes are interrupted, but the most important issue in the event of an incident is that people have the steps to take under control.
Assigning responsibility for each functionis the most important part of a Contingency Plan. It is the key to the delegation of tasks. A harmonic orchestra amid chaos.
Something as simple as arranging a place to meet, planning and coordinating actions, are vital elements of a good plan.
The differential factor of the PACKTUM method
The preparation of a Contingency Plan must add value to the company and be one more channel of INNOVATION, adding alternative processes to those already existing within the company.
3 STEPS: ASSESSMENT, MATCHING and TEST
