Hi Feldspath, welcome!
PM software ISN'T going to be satisfactory for actually building an ISO 22301 BCMS, however.
Why would that be so? Which particular features are there in a BCMS software but not in Microsoft Project?
Won't it depend on the size of the organization? ;I agree that a large organization would need a custom BCMS software but what about a small organization?

Hello feldspath.

My wishlist if there ever would an "All-Inclusive, Everything-On-it-BCMS Software" would be the following features:

1. Ability to perform a business impact analysis - capturing inputs from all stakeholders, evaluating the consequences based on realistic metrics and then prioritizing the processes, services, activities in terms of significance.

2. Ability to perform risk assessment - drawing data on threats and vulnerabilities from the corporate experience; national and international weather and climactic agencies; police and military databases; financial organizations; attrition rates from other organizations, etc. Such data would be geographic specific.

3. Ability to determine risk streatment strategies - picking up available treatment strategies; performing cost-benefit analysis; determining required resources to implement controls, etc.

4. Ability to write the plans - emergency plans, continuity plans, etc.

5. Ability to manage documented information - from creation, revision, distribution, access control, obsoletion, etc.

The above are just a few aspects of a BCMS that I would like to see handle by a single system or software. Most of the above cannot be done by MS Project.

I could the above though using a spreadsheet and word-processing software.

Regards,

Richard

Does anyone have a BCP/Disaster Recovery Plan for a laboratory (focus on sample management)?
Hello.
Let's do a quick planning workflow:

Is it a critical process?
If no, wait until the situation normalizes.
If yes, see further questions below:

Premises
Do you have a ready alternate site?
Do you have a site that needs to be built or equipped?
Can you do this from home?

ICT
What sort of ICT resources do you require?
Do you need to procure?
Are these resources at hand?

People
Do you have competent people able, available, and willing to work?
Can you outsource this?
Can you hire someone to fill the void?

Supplies
Do you have at hand all supplies needed by the process?
Can you buy?

Come up with a strategy first, then write your plan. Even if I have my own BCP, it may not be useful due to the special circumstances of your organization, and the process itself.

Regards,
