This Saturday marks the 30th anniversary of the Manchester Air Disaster, when 53 people lost their lives as a result of a British Airtours jet catching fire during take-off.  Whilst this was a terrible tragedy in its own right, together with the Bradford Stadium fire a few months earlier, it also marks the start of [...]

The last few weeks have seen an unusually high number of food product recalls in the UK.  Against an average of less than 3 per month over the last 5 years, we have already seen 5 recalls in the first 3 weeks of July according to the Food Standards Agency website.  The recalls include: Fovitor [...]

Yesterday I queried if the 7 July bombings could really be considered a "black swan" event.  In fact, much of the impressive IT resilience that firms demonstrated in the aftermath of the bombings was a direct result of steps taken in response to the Provisional IRA bombings of the Baltic Exchange (1992) and Bishopsgate (1993). [...]

Yesterday I commented that, at least from my own personal experience, the 7 July bombings had not led to increased interest in business continuity.  That is not to say that the attacks did not have a lasting impact on the business continuity industry; and in today's article I want to look at how the terrible [...]

The forthcoming tenth anniversary of the 7 July bombings in London has attracted much media coverage.  Quite rightly, the TV and press have focused on the plight of survivors and the families of those who were killed; however, the focus of this series of articles is on what the lasting legacy has been for business [...]

Takata's latest estimate that the airbags fitted in 34 million cars are defective will lead to the largest ever recall of cars in the US.  The recall affects 11 car makers including Honda, Toyota, Daihatsu and Nissan.  This is the latest twist in a saga that has been going on since at least 2008; indeed [...]

The shock UK general election result, confounding numerous and consistent predictions over the last few weeks, serves as a powerful reminder about the hazards of making predictions about the future.  More specifically, people appeared not to appreciate the sensitivity of our electoral system to very small changes in voting patterns in key marginal constituencies; meaning [...]

It is being widely reported that a number of American Airlines flights were delayed yesterday (Tuesday) evening when pilots were unable to view flight plans on their iPads because of a software glitch.  The number of planes affected is unclear, and the delays appear not to have been too severe; but it is a great [...]
