Details & Programme

The Policy and Programme Management stage of the BCM Lifecycle is often where practitioners have to begin in any new role, and it is essential to regularly revisit and review in any existing role.

This course provides the continuity and resilience professional with the ability to identify key aspects of a successful policy and develop or revise one where required. Delegates will then learn how to use the BC policy to create, implement and manage the BCM programme as a part of building and improving organisational resilience.

This course is based on the BCI Good Practice Guidelines 2018 and reflects the current global thinking from ISO 22301.
