When a crisis hits a company, it usually happens unexpectedly and can lead to great damage to the organization’s finances, revenues, reputation, market positioning, and delivery of products or services.
Being able to handle crises needs to be part of every organization’s Risk Management work. Resilience is built by preparedness and in the best of worlds every organization has crisis readiness where crisis governance, a chain of command, organization adjustments, critical dependencies, specific processes, and policies are defined, documented, implemented, and rehearsed. Early warnings and defined triggers define when and what steps are taken and by whom. When a crisis hits, there is little time for creating and implementing new governance and new ways of working.
“Risk, Continuity and Crisis Management has never been more important. Today all companies and organizations need defined processes to manage an unexpected crisis.”
Risk Management must include readiness and preparedness for Business Continuity and Crisis Planning
The ability and preparedness to manage crises determine the organization’s ability to sustain, recover and survive unexpected situations. Risk Management work needs to include Crisis Management and Planning, Business Continuity Management, from a prevention, and restoration perspective.
The different steps and actions required in the situation of a crisis need to be taken in the right order and without delay. Often one of the first steps is to secure people and employee safety. The immediate and effective response is often instrumental, but it is crucial to not lose focus on the longer term, as this might have worse implications for the organization.
