Plan B’s, backups, redundancies, reserves, copies, duplicates. There are many words, names, titles and strategies that are available if your plan A fails, or if you need to recover something that no longer exists. Whether we are talking about business, technology, or sports, this is a universal concept, but if not planned correctly, can still have some flaws. Take football for example. Every team has a depth chart, multiple quarterbacks, etc. So if your starting quarterback gets tackled (and injured) as he completes a pass, and that receiver is tackled out of bounds and takes out the backup quarterback who was holding a clipboard, well you just lost your “plan B”. That scenario would be considered a physical risk. The backup QB was technically “on-site”, in other words, near the field. Had he been “off-site”, in other words, on the bench, he would have been safe and secure. Your business can suffer a similar fate with on-site backup. The physical risks are different, but the result can be the same.
