Strategic Crisis Management

A crisis is a unexpected, disruptive and temporary event, that threatens to harm an organisation or society.

The proper response to a crisis can make the difference between the continued existence and failure of a company.

"Everyone has a plan

until they get punched in the mouth."

- Mike Tyson

Emergency response plans that end on the tactical level are very likely to fail in a real life emergency.

 

If your emergency concept is limited a lot of sentences like “if A happens – do B” you are missing the strategic concept.

 

Maybe there is a good plan for an energy blackout, and a good fire safety concept.

But what happens if there is a fire AND an energy blackout AND you are in vacation so you can not intervene.

 

Making a plan with a painstaking and fool-proof plan with a giant to-do-list for every possible or impossible event is impossible. Small details can change a situation tremendously.

 

Of course, basic emergency plans on a tactical level are essential. Tactical plans are the arms, legs and tools of your plan. But there must be also a brain.

The best football player cannot win a game without a coach who has a plan.
