What is involved in crisis planning?
Crisis planning is a bit of a misnomer. One is not planning to create a crisis, rather one is planning to take actions to avoid a crisis or if the crisis should occur to manage the crisis response.
Crisis anticipation leads to proactive crisis planning and risk mitigation. So how should managers plan the response to a crisis or disaster?
Carefully! It is important that crisis planning doesn't increase the likelihood that the anticipated crisis will occur. Rather the goal is to reduce the negative impacts of a crisis if and when it should occur.
The following steps should be a part of crisis contingency planning:
A crisis situation often involves making decisions quickly and predicting the consequences. In problem situations it is important to assess the pros, cons, and “what ifs”, but in a crisis situation, one often must perform analyses quickly and with limited information. With advance preparation and planning, one can better manage a crisis situation and respond and react more appropriately to such a situation if it occurs.
