A crisis can happen at any time. And as the global business community has experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic, an unplanned event has the potential to escalate into a massive worldwide disruption.
While the origin of the next crisis may be unknown, organisations that prepare properly can avoid repercussions that have the capacity to derail your business.
A crisis can jeopardise your strategy, damage your employees and customers, disrupt normal operations, and induce long-lasting reputational harm.
But if your organisation establishes effective crisis preparation, you can mitigate potential risks — and even emerge stronger.
As we’ve all learned this year, the steps your organisation takes to prepare for and respond to disruption determines how well you’ll recover and, significantly, whether you’re able to emerge stronger.
Before a crisis threatens your organisation, and even in the thick of an unplanned event, targeted initiatives can help assess your preparedness strengths and vulnerabilities — and improve your ability to respond and emerge stronger.
A crisis preparedness assessment provides a detailed snapshot of your organisation’s current crisis-management capabilities; clear, measurable maturity score benchmarking; and a prioritised roadmap for enhancing your program.
Crisis training provides a process for reviewing your crisis and business continuity plans, developing potential crisis scenarios, and putting them to the test. You’ll develop muscle memory and be better prepared for the unknown.
Plan development is critical to an effective crisis management program and, ultimately, crisis response. As the foundation of your response, the plan provides structure and guidance to face the challenges of a significant disruptive event.
On-call agreements provide priority access to a global network of subject matter experts, experienced crisis response personnel, and surge capacity in the event of an incident or crisis response.
When it comes to crisis preparation, you simply cannot overestimate the value of working with a global leader in crisis management.
