Designing and Delivering Effective Exercises Training Course

This course provides the business continuity and resilience professional with the knowledge of how to design and develop exercises that work. Designing and delivering effective exercises is a skill to be mastered for any business continuity and resilience professional. A key part of the Validation stage of the Business Continuity Management (BCM) Lifecycle, exercising the BCM programme for some is the most interesting part of the job. It helps us to practice what to do when things go wrong, and builds confidence and a capability that means the organization can more effectively respond, recover, take opportunities, and learn from a disruption. Exercises are the best way to test our systems, rehearse our plans, and a chance to safely prepare our people.

This course is based on the BCI Good Practice Guidelines and reflects the current global thinking from ISO 22301 and ISO 22398.
