Organizations operate in an increasingly complex and chaotic world. The business environment of today is dynamic, unpredictable, and increasingly unstable. Yet many firms still either ignore, abandon, or procrastinate developing a crisis response program.
Crisis situations are often unexpected and unavoidable and require quick reactions, on-the-spot decision making, and effective communications. The success of responding is directly influenced by the level of knowledge and understanding of what a crisis is, the potential impacts, and how it unfolds and how best to respond.
