Problem-solving (Billett, 1996) is central to thinking, acting and learning. However, reference to problem-solving includes responses to both routine and non-routine problems set in social circumstances.

This process will not only generate new knowledge, but reinforces existing ones. This process of solving problems in the workplace will result in having a cognitive consequence to the learners. An illustration of the types of routine and non-routine problem-solving in BCM is the decision about what is the appropriate procedures to be documented versus what is to be executed during a disaster to be contained in a business continuity plan procedures are problem solving activities.

If the expected learning outside of the classroom is not make known prior to learning, the learners will complete their task and are unaware that learning had taken place. In reality, informal learning in the BCM industry is generally unplanned and unexamined. These are the basic approach (Siadaty et al., 2012) that are appropriate for workplace learning for BCM
