2016 Magic Quadrant for Business Continuity Management Planning

BCM is a board-level initiative that must be aligned to the organization's strategic objectives, and BCM professionals must become business change agents of their organizations — they can no longer take a secondary operational role in managing a program that conducts recovery plan exercises and reports to the board of directors once a year. Because BCM has the complete operating picture of the organization, the BCM program can become the foundation of the operational resilience initiative. Today's progressive BCM leaders accept these responsibilities, despite a higher frequency of unplanned threats and incidents.
