Abstract [en]

Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to present a multi-usable business continuity planning methodology. It comprises business continuity planning on the organizational and departmental levels. Design/methodology/approach - The methodology has been developed, tested and confirmed in three comprehensive cases. Senior management, IT managers and employees in the three case organizations have participated in this action research effort during the development, implementation or training on business continuity plans and planning. Findings - The methodology has been tested and confirmed, and is suitable for explaining business continuity planning to senior managements and employees in both public and private sector organizations. Practical implications - The methodology description can be used for explaining the issues to senior managements and forms the foundation for a business continuity plan, which is part of an organization's IT- and information security program. It may also be used to explain business continuity planning to other staff in an organization. The methodology can also be used to model business continuity planning, as a basis for training planning, and as support in different training contexts to achieve individual and organizational learning on business continuity plans and activities. Originality/value - The methodology of using a staircase or capability maturity model is a commonly used concept and can be adapted to any organization.
