Summary

Offering a strategic orientation to crisis management, Crisis Management in the New Strategy Landscape helps readers understand the importance of planning for crises within the wider framework of an organization's regular strategic management process. The text follows a four-stage crisis management framework: (1) Landscape Survey-anticipating crisis events, (2) Strategic Planning-setting up the crisis management team and plan, (3) Crisis Management-addressing the crisis when it occurs, and (4) Organizational Learning-applying lessons from crises so they will be prevented or at least mitigated in the future. Key Features Covers the latest trends in crisis management and looks forward to how crisis management plans and teams will look in the future Views crisis management through the lens of chaos theory, which offers real world application for practicing managers in the context of crisis management Includes a full chapter on business ethics that shows how ethical issues with management can contribute to crises and what can be done to avoid future ethics-related crises Offers a chapter on organizational learning that shows managers what needs to be done after the crisis ends, and why it is important not to return to business as usual Includes case studies and vignettes at the beginning and end of each chapter to give readers a look at real world situations where crises have occurred Provides an outline of items to include in a crisis management plan in the Appendix Crisis Management in the New Strategy Landscape is intended for upper-level undergraduate or graduate courses in Crisis Management or Crisis Communications offered in departments of management, public administration, or communication. The book could also be used as a supplement for strategic management (business policy) courses.
