Course Overview

Crisis management is a process by which an organisation deals with an emergency situation or a disruptive, unexpected event. Crisis management gained importance after some organisations suffered large-scale industrial and environmental disasters. Crises come as a threat to an organisation, with an element of surprise and demanding quick action with little decision-making time.

Crisis management is distinctly different from risk management in that risk management involves the study and prediction of risks and the decision of next steps to prevent the occurrence, while crisis management involves handling and managing threats immediately before, during and after occurrence. There are specific skills and techniques required to identify, assess, understand and cope with a serious situation.

Crisis management involves clear, situation-based management systems including roles and responsibilities and process-related organisational requirements. It encompasses methods to respond to the perception and reality of crises, establishing metrics to identify crises and determine communication during the response phase of a crisis.

Crisis management is sometimes also referred to as incident management. Reputation is an intangible concept but can increase corporate worth and provide a sustained competitive advantage.

Reputation management involves efforts and processes undertaken to manage the perception of an organisation or brand in the public eye. Online reputation management includes managing references to the organisation through social media monitoring and carefully crafted search queries.

Social media analytics and other such tools help measure current public opinion of an organisation. Public relation campaigns may be conducted to increase the visibility of positive opinions or decrease the visibility of negative opinions.

Reputation management is extremely important as it is good and helpful to know the views and opinions of internal and external stakeholders.

Issues management is the process by which an organisation manages its policies and identifies potential problems, issues or trends that could impact its future. Overall, the above three concepts are extremely important for organisational growth and development.

This Zoe training course will empower you with in-depth information and understanding about crisis, reputation and issues management. The knowledge gained through this course will help you effectively manage crises at your organisation, limiting the negative impact they could cause to the growth and success of the organisation.

Further, this Crisis, Reputation and Issues Management training course will help you undertake important roles that will improve and maintain your organisation’s brand image, which in turn will have positive effects on the prospect of the business.

Overall, this Crisis, Reputation and Issues Management training course will provide the complete skill set required to undertake critical and influential roles in your organisation, which involve crisis and issue management and branding, thus increasing opportunities to prove potential and foster career growth and progression.
