Before any significant amount of work can be done developing a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP), it is essential to know exactly what the scope of the plan will be and who will be involved in developing it. To assist IT departments with DR planning, this Excel-based tool documents the following DRP elements:

  • Project scope and affected areas.
  • Project definition statement.
  • Business unit listings.
  • Dependencies.
  • Timeline planning.
  • Project goal statements.
  • Stakeholder communications plan.

IT departments hope they never need to test their work beyond scheduled scenario tests of the plan. As such, every DRP must be based upon a solid planning of the enterprise's staff and a realistic assessment of priorities.

This downloadable tool is associated with the research note, “DRP Essentials: Start with a Clear Scope.”
