Communicating in a Crisis is a Two-Way Street

Posted by James BW on Nov 16, 2018 8:30:00 AM


If your organization has a crisis communication plan, your team has probably thought long and hard about what you’ll say, to whom, and through what channels.

Show me an executive who thinks they’ve got crisis leadership down pat, and I’ll show you someone who doesn’t have the first clue about the nature of crisis. That’s right. Crisis is nothing like you think. Of unusual-and I mean unusual-frequency and impact, a crisis, especially novel crisis, forces business leaders to take decisive steps to respond to challenges they’ve probably never confronted, without understanding the provenance of the crisis in the first place or the longer-term consequences of the crisis intervention they’re about to take.

How Important Is Simplicity in Crisis Management App Design?

Posted by The Brain on Oct 10, 2018 9:18:42 AM


Let’s face facts. Features only improve products when actual customers use them. Too often well-intentioned features create more complexity than value. That’s never more so the case than when those features are introduced with cumbersome design elements, which users need to wade through in order to get where they need to go. After all, users are humans. And there’s only so much design stimuli we can absorb at any one time.

The Rise and Fall of the Minerals Management Service: A risk management cautionary tale

Posted by The Brain on Sep 21, 2018 2:27:03 AM


In the words of former White House energy and climate change tsar, Carol Browner, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill was the worst environmental disaster the U.S. has had to face. The toll of the disaster is indeed difficult to comprehend. For nearly three months, more than four million barrels of oil leaked into the Gulf of Mexico, the equivalent of multiple Exxon Valdez spills. And as to the length of shoreline oiled, scientists at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration found oil along 1,313 miles of ecologically-sensitive Gulf coast.
