Additional Information

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.

  • 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

This book will be a very nice addition for any manager who wants to become an expert in handling crisis in the workplace. To my thinking this should be a bible for all people in management positions.
I needed this book for a class. It was pretty stupid in that leadership has the same qualities regardless of the situation. So, this is "crisis management" - big deal. A leader is a leader. I got into it about that with my prof a few times. The book outlines what to do in a crisis, but it is the same things all of my other leadership courses taught. I really think this is just a made-up segment of management that is aimed at getting more money from students. If there is crisis or peace, a leader should have a plan right? Dumb book.
