BCI Competency Framework


The BCI Competency Framework defines the professional standards needed to be an effective business continuity practitioner at every career stage.  It is a tool to help individuals advance as professionals, to help employers develop resilience capability through workforce planning & development, and to give society confidence in the resilience profession.

The BCI Competency Framework has been created in consultation with many BCI stakeholders to reflect the needs of individual business continuity professionals and their employers. This Framework works alongside, and compliments, the BCI Good Practice Guidelines.

 The BCI Competency Framework is designed to:

  • Help business continuity & resilience professionals plan and develop their careers
  • Help the BCI to assess future membership applications and make BCI membership more valuable
  • Make it easier for employers to identify the skills required for their business continuity teams
  • Allow the BCI’s training partners to plan their portfolio of training courses that they offer.

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 & resilience professionals such as leadership, ethics & values and working with others.

The BCI Competency Framework will also be used by the BCI to make informed decisions about individuals’ membership levels, develop professional qualifications and provide member services that support practitioners at all career stages.
