BCP FAQ
I’m a small business owner. Will this program help my business? Is this program a good use of my time?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Calamities and disasters, key supply disruptions, product safety recalls, and the loss or incapacitation of key people can happen to any business, even small businesses. Yes, this program will help you to identify, mitigate, and prepare for risks like these and more. A small investment of your time now can save your business when the unfortunate happens.

I’m an employee who’s been asked to develop a business continuity plan for my organization. Will this program help me complete this task on time?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Putting together a good business continuity plan takes some time – there’s no avoiding that. However, with this program you’ll know what to do and how to do it – very quickly. You’ll get the job done far more efficiently and effectively than you would otherwise.

What educational background do I need?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
No special training or background is required for this program. No prerequisites are required!

I can find free templates online. Why should I buy this program?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A good business continuity plan is more than just filling out templates. Blindly filling out templates without understanding why and how along the way is like trying to dance by following footsteps stickers on the dancefloor. You’ll go through some motions, but what you’ll end up with won’t be very good.

Developing a good BCP isn’t about going through the motions. It’s about understanding where and how your business or organization is at risk, and how you can best respond to them or even mitigate or avoid them. Understanding what you’re doing will give you a far more useable and effective BCP than simply filling out templates just because they’re free.

What’s the difference between your program and going through the process of getting certified?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In terms of being able to develop a good, effective business continuity plan for your business or organization? None. You’ll learn everything that a newly-minted Associate Business Continuity Professional (ABCP) has learned, but for a far smaller investment of both time and money.

The professional certification and designation is of value if you are making this your profession. If you aren’t though, then the certification and designation have little value for you and it doesn’t make sense to pursue them when you can have the same knowledge and understanding for far less.

If I buy this program, can you guarantee that my business or organization can survive any disaster?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nobody can ever make such a guarantee. What I can say with absolute certainty is that with this program, you can develop a business continuity plan that gives you the very best change possible of surviving – and even coming out better than your competition if they are also affected – from a disaster or calamity.
