Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Crisis management is constantly in the minds of managers and business owners, but rarely put into a structured policy integrated into general company governance. A serious event that can impact on the normal running of a business is becoming more frequent and it is not until a major negative event occurs that managers realize the importance of planning and crisis management – by which time it may be too late.
Contingency Planning and Crisis Management provides the reader with the tools by which to develop a contingency plan, identify the key areas that could be affected and manage a critical situation as optimally feasible. This book will also cover staff enrollment and participation, risk monitors, maintenance and scenario planning.
