Details & Programme
Validation is a key part of the BCM Lifecycle. The process of validation provides assurance that your plans and capabilities remain current and fit for purpose and identifies any areas for improvement.
This course will explore how to develop a comprehensive exercise programme to ensure that all elements of the BCM Lifecycle are validated.
The course, as well as instruction will be practical and ‘hands on’ allowing students to practice the skills and techniques taught.
This course is based on the BCI Good Practice Guidelines 2018 and reflects the current global thinking from ISO 22301 and ISO 22398.
