With Business Continuity Awareness Week 2012 approaching, (19-23 March), the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) has recently announced a special offering regarding BC24 the internet Business Continuity Management (BCM) game. The BC24 game helps businesses understand the value of effective BCM and provides those businesses with a reason to change the way they deal with and plan for disasters and other potentially disruptive incidents or events.
In essence, BC24 is a single scenario game involving a flood and a supply chain failure and all its consequences right from operational impacts to potential threats to the reputation of that business. Written by professional e-learning and gaming professionals, it avoids the use of BCM jargon, so anyone can play the game and there is value in it for everyone who does. All you need is internet connection and a standard browser. And it only takes 15 minutes to complete!
The BC24 game is normally available on a license fee-basis only —-but, the BCI is making it available to businesses free of charge throughout the Business Continuity Awareness Week 2012 – i.e. 19-23 March 2012.
