Take part in an industry-wide consultation
There seems to be no widely accepted model
which can be used to present the concept of business continuity
management in a way which is simple enough to allow rapid understanding
in people new to the industry, yet comprehensive enough to be useful
in other areas of the BCM process, such as communicating with the
company board and in awareness and training programmes.
Continuity Central is inviting you to help
develop an open source (i.e copyright free) model which can achieve
the above goals. As a starting point we have developed a ‘straw
man,’ to use a marketing cliché, which is illustrated
below. We would welcome your feedback and additional ideas which
you can submit using the form underneath.
The model is intended to show that business
continuity management consists of both preventative and reactive
aspects - these are the areas of BCM that occur before and after
a crisis or incident. On each side of the model are ‘inputs’
and ‘outputs’, inputs being the activities that take
place and outputs being the results of the inputs.
