Crisis Management: Don't wait, plan for it
Presenter: Abbas Alimorad

Viable organizations need to be ready for emergencies because they are a fact of doing business. The worst plan is not to have any kind of plan at all, and the best plans are tested and adjusted so that they work over time. Fortunately, you do not need separate plans for fire, weather disasters, and all the different kinds of crises that can occur. One solid plan will help you to prevent, respond, and recover from all crises. .

Participants will explore what crisis management means and look at the components of a crisis management team. We will discuss what elements should be considered when developing a training program, the different factors of a crisis audit and using risk matrix.

Participants will learn about performing a risk level analysis and another way to assess risks. They will also have an opportunity to practice risk level analysis.

We will also looking at problem solving process that can help crisis management team members stay in control. We will share a three-phase model that can be used as a starting point.
