Crisis Management & Recovery

March 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Crisis management is a process, not an event.

It is an ongoing, systematic, and disciplined process that an organization should follow to help identify vulnerabilities, prevent crises from occurring, plan for those most likely to occur, communicate effectively during and after a crisis, monitor and evaluate the situation, and make adjustments as necessary.

It is no longer a question of whether a crisis will happen, but rather when, which type, and how it will occur. Managers and employees need to think about the unthinkable in order to protect their organizations. The better an organization can anticipate areas of vulnerability, or possible crises the better it can prepare to manage them. This webinar will provide a roadmap for your library or organization’s crisis management and recovery process!

This webinar will cover:

  • Characteristics and elements of a crisis
  • Creating a crisis response team
  • Anticipating areas of vulnerability or possible crises
  • How to identify and group the wide range of crises an organization may encounter
  • Designing procedures for responding to crisis
  • Planning for crisis recovery
