Abstract
Business Continuity Management (BCM) is in many respects a technically oriented field. The technical aspects of BCM are of great importance, however they become meaningless if not used and managed properly. Without adequate human and organizational conditions, there is a risk that BCM does not take the decisive step from solely comprising well-documented business continuity plans, to also generating actual behaviors that are deeply rooted in the corporate culture. To increase the knowledge on BCM, with regards to human and organizational aspects, this thesis develops and presents a conceptual model, and also a more detailed guiding method, for the process of implementing BCM.

To increase the knowledge on BCM, with regards to human and organizational aspects, this thesis develops and presents a conceptual model, and also a more detailed guiding method, for the process of implementing BCM. The guiding method has, in some degree, been customized to suit the conditions on the Volvo Construction Equipment site in Eskilstuna, Sweden. An extensive literature study, and a review of the findings, has been carried out as the basis for the conclusions presented in this report. (Less)
