One of the most important management competencies is planning. Crisis planning is the preparation of documented action steps designed to improve the organization’s response towards mitigating a disruption’s impact on assets and resources. In tandem with day-to-day operational constraints and limitations, the threat of an event evolving into a crisis consistently challenges an organization’s management team to walk a tight rope between adequate mitigation efforts and fiscal need. In balancing these competing interests, the question of, “How much crisis planning is enough?” is often asked.
Crisis planning is essential to monitor for, react to, and recover from organizational disruptions. There are three key aspects which provide indicators as to where your plan resides:
- Developing and monitoring organization’s risk profile.
- Defining and communicating your organization’s risk appetite.
- Ensuring crisis planning is established, implemented, and effective
