Logic, simplicity and a clear structure now characterise the very essence of the GPG, running through its pages from start to finish. In particular, the BCM Lifecycle has been subject to an especially positive and eye-catching make-over, which now better reflects the purpose of the Lifecycle, which is to embed BC in an organization by working through the other 5 Professional Practices that make up the Lifecycle, each one taking you closer and closer to your target.
For those of you familiar with the previous Lifecycle, the BCI has simply turned in inside out!
The GPG also makes a key differentiation between Business Continuity as a discipline that leads to organizational resilience and Business Continuity Management as a process, which is the sum of the activities that make up good BC practice, which is in itself quite revolutionary and will play a key role in taking this discipline forward and ensuring its cross-disciplinary adoption by Crisis, Risk Managers and the like and not just by BC practitioners.

The Good Practice Guidelines are not a standard or a mandate; nor are they designed to serve the same purpose as a standard. What makes them even more significant and formidable is the fact that they can be applied to every type and size of organization working in any sector in any part of the world. One of the principal strengths of the Good Practice Guidelines is that they have not been written in isolation. They have been carefully aligned to various standards and recognised industry practices across a wide range of BC related disciplines, including Risk and Crisis Management, to ensure that they are as comprehensive and current as possible.
They are not the only resource that can be used to develop a Business Continuity Management BCM programme, but they certainly represent one of the key reference sources and remain a top resource for BC professionals when setting up a BCM programme. The Good Practice Guidelines have been subject to a stringent quality assurance process to ensure they continue to drive the highest standards in BC.
