The Business Continuity Management Team will be led by the Business Continuity Manager, who will be responsible for the delivery of the BCP, embedding BC within the organisation and ongoing maintenance of the BCP. Depending on the scope of the programme the BC Manager might be assisted by a Business Continuity Analyst. In large organisations there may also be Business Continuity Co-ordinators within each business unit, who are responsible for assisting with the gathering of the impact data (see Section Conduct Business Impact Analysis) and for writing and maintaining their own business unit recovery plans under the guidance of the Business Continuity Manager.
The Business Continuity Manager does not necessarily become a member of the Incident Management Team during an incident (see Section Assign Incident Teams). Rather, this role is often used in a consultative capacity owing to its extensive knowledge of the organisation.
