Crisis Management is defined as:
“The identification of threats to an organization and its stakeholders, and the methods used by the organization to deal with these threats”.
Ouroboros provide strategic crisis management, communication support and psychological intervention 24 hours a day.
Knowing what to do in unfamiliar situations can be devastating for your organisation. With over 18 years of crisis management experience we can help organisations develop their crisis management strategy. This is achieved via our five point plan to crisis management.
By undertaking a risk audit we can significantly enhance your crisis
strategy. Clients can benefit from our wide range of cross-industry
experience whilst we quickly develop an understanding of your
organisation, and probe key staff to identify where the risks exist in
your operations and how these risks are best addressed. Our audit
report will detail how to improve your strategy for enhancing your
crisis response plans.
User-friendly crisis plans are the bedrock of any organisation's crisis management structure. In conjunction with your team, we can create your crisis response plans. This process will involve exploring a number of areas within your organisation and will develop from the information gathered during the crisis risk audit.
Ouroboros Consulting have delivered numerous training workshops
and simulation exercises. We can provide you with training for your
crisis teams to deal with all aspects of managing the incident.
This could include a general overview of crisis management or perhaps
more specific input for your individual crisis management teams.
Workshops including introduction to crisis management, tabletop extercises, full scale crisis response exercises, special assistance team development & support and crisis media training.
All plans and procedures need to be tested regularly to provide an opportunity to review their effectiveness and further develop them as and where necessary. We find that the best method is to conduct a real-life simulation exercise. These can range from a simple but effective tabletop exercise through to a large scale real-time scenario. The exercise will provide an efficient cost-effective means of testing your documented procedures. It will identify significant flaws or omissions in the crisis response plans and procedures, in time to make changes prior to an actual incident.
"Testing leads to failure and failure leads to understanding"
