528  Guidelines for Developing a Crisis Management Plan

Many small to medium-sized companies (including contractors) fail to recognize the need for a crisis management plan. As a result, they often flounder and appear to be inept when a crisis does occur. When a catastrophic event occurs the affected business must have a well-prepared and rehearsed crisis management plan in place. This session will cover identification of events that may trigger a crisis and the internal and external resources required to effectively manage the crisis. Participants will be provided with a checklist to help them identify the needed components of an effective crisis management plan and guidelines for a table-top drill.
