Category: Crisis & Reputation

It does not matter whether your crisis communications plan is in a binder on a shelf, or kept electronically in a smartphone. What is important is that your organization has one. The crisis communications plan is a critical component of an organization’s crisis management program. Despite advances in digital technology and social media, a successful response to a crisis depends on a solid plan built around teams, processes, audiences and messages.
You will learn how to:

  • Identify the critical parts of a crisis plan.
  • Leverage the value of other existing company plans and procedures.
  • Select a crisis team and maximize its effectiveness.
  • Maintain and improve your plan.
  • Provide value to your organization when it counts — in a crisis.
