Crisis Management and Emergency Preparedness; Video and Slides § Harvard University Extension School - MGMT E-5090 | Sports Facility Management | Scoop.it

 

Crises challenge organizations to respond creatively to high-stakes and novel circumstances.

 

Today not only traditional emergency responders (police, firefighters, and emergency medical teams) must be ready for crises, but also private and nonprofit organizations, as well as a wider spectrum of public sector responders (for example, public health, transportation, and public works).

 

This course takes a managerial perspective on crisis management and emergency preparedness.

 

It focuses both on what responders must do during the critical period of crisis response and on how organizations can prepare themselves for high performance in these situations.

 

It examines which skills and management systems crises demand; considers the differences between managing routine emergencies and crises; and asks how organizations can effectively prepare for crises in advance.

Definition of 'Crisis Management:

"The identification of threats to an organization and its stakeholders, and the methods used by the organization to deal with these threats.

 

Due to the unpredictability of global events, organizations must be able to cope with the potential for drastic changes to the way they conduct business.

 

Crisis management often requires decisions to be made within a short time frame, and often after an event has already taken place.

 

In order to reduce uncertainty in the event of a crisis, organizations often create a crisis management plan."
