This Thematic Unit / Module is designed to advance student knowledge and analytical skills in crisis types, contexts, techniques, protocols, and procedures in Business Continuity Planning (BCP) for Transformational Leadership in the Digital Society.


The Module focuses on practical and conceptual issues in the field of BCP. Context-related challenges are assessed in relation to BCP development and techniques, protocol and procedures are evaluated against specific BCP criteria that fit contextual circumstances, but which also account for standards and good practices in the industry as a whole. Main parts of BCP are presented and the need for exercising, maintaining, and reviewing plans for embedding BCP strategic awareness and action when needed in organisational development of long-term strategy perspectives are discussed. Case studies and published sources are used for analysis and evaluation of organizational contexts and discussions about BCP. Students are also urged to use their own organisation context and/or a specific organizational context they wish to better understand in relation to BCP. An E-Book and research resources are provided to support student learning, but students are also encourage to engage with research and independent learning under tutor guidance.
