And I begin my assessment. We call the everyday workings of arts organizations their critical functions… which were defined over the past two years by through our research in the arts community.
For each function that applies to my organization I consider various statements of readiness. Frist by thinking of my preparedness level…. Is the item ready or true? Does it need some work? Have we even considered it?
Then I think about its priority level related to my organization… again all depending on what we do and who we are.
And statements or sections that are irrelevant to me….
Don’t have to be considered
My assessment then ports into a custom To-Do list, where the real planning starts.
I can assign tasks to members of my staff
I can even add my own to-do items if there is something unique to my organization… and sort it by its critical funtion.
Many to-dos prompt an upload into our critical stuff. This feature is what I call the safety deposit box. It is cloud based storage where an organization can safely store all of its most vital files related to its preparedness plan…
I can upload, pdfs of my insurance policies or my phone tree. I can link to a url or even type direct text.
There are a variety of security levels so I can always rest assured that my items are safe and viewable only by those that I want to see it… I can sort by function, link to a to-do item, or even share with a Battle Buddy…
