Types of Crisis Scenarios

One of the major elements of effective crisis management (CM) and crisis communication (CC) planning includes an assessment of the most likely crisis scenarios.  This blog presents the category of crisis scenarios to be considered.

“Major crises occur not only because of what an organization knows, anticipates, and plans for but just as much because of what it does not know and does not anticipate.”
