Some call it pre-event planning and others call it advance planning for recovery. Whichever term you use, the process is worth highlighting again.  Recently Eric Holdermann’s blog captured some advice from a seminar at Harvard on the topic of advance recovery planning.  Although that info is not yet available online, some of the recent work by Harvard University professors can be found below:
