Policy and Programme Management

Part of the POLICY AND PROGRAMME stage of the BCM Lifecycle

Course description

This course covers all aspects of creating and managing a successful business continuity (BC) policy and a Business Continuity Management (BCM) programme in an organization. This is often the stage of the BCM Lifecycle where practitioners have to begin in any new role, and is essential to regularly revisit and review in any existing role.

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

This course is based on the Business Continuity Institute's Good Practice Guidelines and reflects the current global thinking from ISO 22301.
