The BCI has announced the launch of the BCI Competency Framework, which have been developed to complement the long-established Good Practice Guidelines (GPG).
The BCI says that the Competency Framework:
- Defines the professional standards needed to be an effective business continuity practitioner at every career stage.
- Is a tool to help individuals advance as professionals, to help employers develop resilience capability through workforce planning and development, and to give society confidence in the resilience profession.
- Has been created in consultation with many BCI stakeholders to reflect the needs of individual business continuity professionals and their employers.
The BCI Competency Framework builds on traditional business continuity competencies contained in the Good Practice Guidelines by introducing additional competencies that are essential for effective business continuity and resilience professionals.
