Report
Pandemic Preparedness for Businesses and their Supply Chains
Ensuring that Your Enterprise Survives
(and Thrives!) in the Pandemic

We've all heard about the Pandemic - and every day another news story breaks as it looms closer on our horizon. However, most of the focus has been on the response of the government and individuals. We feel that not enough attention has been paid to the impact this would have on companies and their supply chains. We also believe that most companies may not be at all prepared, with the consequences of their lack of preparedness being overwhelming.

That's why we feel compelled to do this research project. This Pandemic Preparedness for Businesses report will help your company better understand what the true threat is, what a solid preparedness plan should contain, how and when the execution of the plan should occur, as well as who should be involved in the planning and execution.

In particular, this report describes two vital indices to help assess and improve a companies readiness for the pandemic:

  • Pandemic Demand IndexTM (PDI) -- A measure of the relative level of demand for your companies products leading up to, during, and immediately after the Pandemic.
  • Pandemic Readiness IndexTM (PRI) -- A measure of the readiness of your company, including it's supply chain and service partners, for continuing operation and fulfilling demand during the Pandemic.
  • If you purchase the report, you will also get a copy of the "Individual/Family Pandemic Preparedness Checklist" - what you and your family need to do and purchase to be ready for the Pandemic.
