Crisis Management

Many companies have no idea how ill-prepared they are to handle a crisis – until an emergency hits. Outdated or overly complicated crisis plans aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on if they can’t help your organization deal with a threatening situation. It’s virtually impossible to prevent a catastrophe, but there’s really no excuse for being unable to cope with the fallout.

There are many types of crises, including natural, technological and social. In getAbstract’s library you’ll find high-quality summaries that address the variety of unpleasant predicaments your business could face. Fortunately, the leading experts in the crisis management field also offer sensible advice and practical solutions to fix your problems and put you back on the right track.
