Equipped with an understanding of your ability to respond to a crisis, your organisation can prioritise and allocate resources accordingly.
The crisis preparedness assessment will help you determine how ready you are to respond to an unplanned disruption.
Analysing your answers to more than 180 questions across nine core crisis management components, PwC’s proprietary, web-based platform quantifies and benchmarks your readiness to respond to a crisis.
36% of organisations report that they have not been prepared in assessing the long-term threat of the COVID-19 pandemic and what it means for corporate strategy.
With the right information, your response to even the most drastic crisis — a massive data breach, a pandemic, a widespread corruption scandal — can help you weather the storm, recover and emerge stronger.
The crisis preparedness assessment, customised for your needs and preferences, provides a detailed snapshot of your crisis management capabilities. You’ll have a clear, measurable benchmarking score on maturity and a prioritised roadmap to enhance your program.
Additional benefits of the assessment include:
Organisations that lack a crisis program can fall behind when a disruption hits. Rather than calmly moving ahead with a strategic response, unprepared organisations are constantly reacting to the next emergency — and there can be many, depending on the nature of the crisis.
The crisis preparedness assessment gives you the information you need to formulate and prepare an appropriate response.
If your assessment reveals you’re lacking a meaningful governance structure, for instance, you can design one before a crisis situation develops. Or if you discover that one of your functional teams has created a powerful data-collection tool, you can adapt it to track critical information during a crisis.
Our crisis preparedness assessment begins with an evaluation of your current state. We measure your level of crisis preparedness, your preparedness objectives and your crisis capabilities in comparison to industry peers.
From there, our tech-enabled tool helps you prioritise our recommendations, and we work with you to develop a roadmap to get you there.
We take an investigative approach that applies forensic analysis and practical measurement to glean observations through interviews, data and other means.
The result is an actionable, robust roadmap customised for your organisation.
