Since we had just started out on our business continuity plan process, and were planning the BIA interviews, learning about the BCM lifecycle helped me to get up to speed with my team. I further learned a lot from the examples that were shared and was able to bring some best practice suggestions to the team that we could implement in practice.

This is an invaluable tool when you are working with business partners in embedding business continuity in your organization.
