This program aims to make the participants champions of organizational resilience by equipping them with the techniques and skillsets necessary to effectively implement and appraise their respective BCPs. The program focuses on addressing the challenges they face during BCP implementation through realistic and context-driven design of crisis simulations, alongside other techniques necessary to advocate for resilience across all levels of the organization.
