Crisis Action Planning - Are You Ready?

Tuesday, January 19, 2016

Do you know that after a major disaster 40% of all businesses do not recover and subsequently disappear? The question you should ask yourself is: Do I want to be part of the 60% or the 40%? And, even if you part of the 60% that survives, how much will your business suffer both in relations with your customers and in your profitability? If your community is counting on you to provide critical services how much will your reputation suffer?

At JWA we look at disaster planning as much more than preparing for natural disasters – the typical way of thinking about the issue.This is why we have chosen to call the issue CRISIS ACTION PLANNING. Crisis action planning is much more than planning for natural disasters – your planning should also be for issues ranging from a bad press story to a sudden recession as in 2008. In a crisis your management and leadership processes must be adjusted from your day-to-day operations.

We know that a crisis will occur; it is not a matter of if, but of when. We also know that, human nature being what it is; finding the time, energy, and resources to conduct the planning is difficult.Crisis planning is that item most of us are always “going to get to. JWA has extensive expertise in crisis action planning so let us help you. We will work with you as part of your team to facilitate your planning and to prepare an individualized, flexible plan that is affordable in terms of time, people, and money. The result will be a leadership and management process to handle any unexpected situation or event.
