For a business recovery process to be effective it is necessary to carefully consider and plan for the potentially complex series of activities needed to recover from a serious emergency. A planned approach is likely to result in a more coherent and structured recovery. It is likely that a serious disruptive event will produce unexpected results which may differ in some ways from the predicted outcomes contained within this plan. The BRT should review any pre-defined procedures or strategies in the light of the actual situation arising following the disruptive event and modify these procedures as appropriate.
This section of the BCP contains a list of procedures to be followed to achieve a structured and coherent recovery process. It should be noted that the severity level of the emergency might affect the manner in which these processes are implemented.
The BCP Template also contains a suitable format for recording the roles and responsibilities of individual members of the team or groups of individuals. These forms will enable the expectations from the Business Recovery Team to be properly communicated to each employee.

At each Chapter and Section level, the Plan contains a Process Control Summary to be used to ensure that each section of the plan has been completed and reviewed. The Process Control Summary should contain the activity start date, and also a date reflecting each time that chapter, section or topic was updated.
