Strategic Crisis Management for Professionals
Course Description
Are you %100 confident that you and your organization are prepared, if not, where do you start? Simply put, the best way of dealing with a crisis is to avoid one in the first place. But if crises are inevitable due to a growing number of factors including terrorism then you and your organization needs to identify all vulnerabilities and map out possible crisis scenarios. Effective Strategic Crisis Management depends on sound and swift decision making, and neither can happen without corporate wide and multi-agency preplanning. Expert analysis of business crisis find that rushed strategic management decisions, incorrect statements, actions, or inactions have caused many of the most newsworthy business crises during or following an event. Effective Strategic Crisis Management begins with effective decision making. In an emergency, the first major decisions made regarding how to handle the unfolding situation are almost always the most important ones. Good initial decisions can make even a catastrophe manageable; bad decisions can fatally exacerbate an otherwise small problem. In both cases, the window of opportunity for initial decision making is extremely small and closes rapidly. Once the moment for decision making has gone, it does not come back. Your strategic corporate response must be coordinated and effective; your strategic crisis management teams will be pre-identified and fully trained.
