Once you have understood the definition of a crisis and how it applies to your organization, proceed to take a hard look to identify the issues that can develop into a crisis.
One of the major elements of effective Crisis Management (CM) and Crisis Communication (CC) planning includes an assessment of the most likely crisis scenarios. The issues can span the organization and may include how an organisation leadership conduct itself as a concern, a growing list of safety violations or a stream of negative news stories.
The challenge for most professionals embarking on crisis management is the tendency to define crisis management in accordance to their functional role or job responsibility. It is recommended that one takes a view of the "universe" of crisis and then decide what is "in-scope" for your functional responsibilities. However, many a time, the crises identified that do not fall into your functional roles are discarded.
What are the Types of Crisis or Crisis Scenarios?
Some of the basic types (or categories) and causes of crises:
- Organizational Misdeeds
- Skewed Management Values
- Management Misconduct
- Workplace Violence
- Malicious Rumors
- Lack of Funds
