The article discusses challenges to business continuity management (BCM) and suggests ways to engage executives to BCM. Managers' lack of understanding of BCM, lack of personal experience of crises and constant distraction by more pressing concerns are some of the major challenges to BCM. Some companies use various profit-sharing schemes such as granting of shares and share-options to engage executives to BCM. But the author thinks that the long-term payback of a thorough BCM programme does not fit well with the short-term basis of most executive incentive schemes. He suggests ways to remedy this dilemma.
