Designing and delivering effective exercises is a skill to be mastered for any business continuity and resilience professional.

It helps us to practice what to do when things go wrong, and builds confidence and a capability that means the organization can more effectively respond, recover, take opportunities, and learn from a disruption. Exercises are the best way to test our systems, rehearse our plans, and a chance to safely prepare our people.
