[TL] [2] [CRA] Running the Crisis Scenario Risk Assessment

This series is part [2] of the reading for participants embarking on a "Training-led CM Implementation" with experienced CM professionals facilitating and reviewing your initial submission. 

The organisation can use this approach to update, develop, implement and finalise its CM program for an organisation. 

This starts the Crisis (Scenario) Risk Assessment or CRA phase.

1. Supplementary Readings

New call-to-actionNew call-to-action


Participants will receive regular emails that direct them to BCM Institute's Learning Management System (LMS) or eCampus. There, they can view content similar to what they are reading now.

It contains bite-size pre-reading information on risk analysis and review.

This is done to introduce them to the fundamental concepts ahead of the three more 3-hour workshops, helping participants optimise their time at the workshops.

What should participants do "Before" the Online Workshop?

Participants are to:

  1. Read the supplementary pre-reading materials before the workshop
  2. Completed the two E-Learning Modules, "Overview of CM" and "Crisis Risk Assessment (CRA)".  This is done in Module 1.
  3. Download the softcopy Crisis Scenario Risk Assessment or CRA templates from the eCampus
  4. Start filling in their CRA templates downloaded from

    eCampus, with the assistance of the guidance notes

  5. Highlight the content you are unsure about being asked about during the coming workshop.

2.  Facilitated Workshop 


BL-B-3 Run2 ZOOM - Copy (2)

A workshop will be conducted to guide participants in identifying, analysing and evaluating their risks or crisis scenarios.

The facilitator will also use this time to explain the more complex concepts of risk. A set of templates facilitates this process.

Participants will be put through an E-Learning program for the online workshop one to two weeks before the start of the online workshop.  

The e-learning modules were completed in Module 1.  This will be the first of the eight online sessions or the two-module online course. Click the icon to learn more about the e-learning module's content.

Before the online workshop session, this will give them the necessary information and context to understand some key concepts involved in Crisis Scenario Risk Assessment (CRA).

It is important to note that the workshop is a 1-time group event.  Hence, participants must lock this event in their calendars. No repeat workshop will be conducted for absent participants, and there is a possibility that BCM Institute will not pass the participant if he/she is not present during the class.

Summary of what participants should do "During" and "After" the workshop?

Participants (CM Program Lead or CM Program Team Members) are required to:

During Workshop
  1. Attend the workshop and clarify any queries during the class as the facilitator walks through the template sequentially during the seminar.
After Workshop
  1. Amend and submit your CRA templates via the eCampus submission link
  2. Review and finalise your template based on the comments written on your returned submission email by the Facilitator
  3. Rename your file as Version 2.0 or V 2.0 and submit the finalised "reviewed" CAR template submission via upload to BCM Institute's eCampus portal
  4. Submit within two working days after the workshop
  5. All submitted CAR templates from all the participants will be batched to the CM Program Lead for final consolidation and reporting

3. Consultation with Project Team Leader [Online]

Subject to Prior Agreement. After the workshop, participants will have two working days (after completion) to complete and submit the templates via the eCampus portal.  

The consolidated submission will be batched to the appointed CM Program Lead, who will consolidate the templates and develop the first draft of the report.
