International Handbook of Organizational Crisis Management reflects the latest understanding of the field from prominent scholars and practitioners around the globe. Pushing the boundaries of crisis management research and practice, the handbook offers new frameworks and findings that capture insights and guidance for researchers and executives.Key Features* Provides the latest thinking on and encourages growing support of crisis management in todayAes business environment: Novel and poorly understood technologies, globalization, changing political climates, and a shifting social landscape are just a few of the forces currently changing the ways in which organizations experience crises.+ Challenges core assumptions and goes beyond conventional rules: Numerous books touch on the topic, but many lack rigor with untested fear based prescriptions and quick fixes.+ Offers a diversity of angles and levels of analysis: Crisis management is analyzed from societal, interorganizational, organizational, and individual perspectives.+ Presents international and multicultural perspectives: Crises are not perceived in the same way globally; therefore, international researchers and practitioners expose their views of crisis management from their own cultural angles.Intended AudienceOffering a leading-edge overview of the field of crisis management, this resource is useful for researchers and thoughtful practitioners in business and management, psychology, and sociology. It can also be used in graduate courses such as Strategic Management and Business Policy, Corporate Strategy, Occupational/Industrial Psychology, and Communication Risk Management.

Pauline Allen and Bronwen Neil investigate crisis management as conducted by the increasingly important episcopal class in the 5th and 6th centuries. Their basic source is the neglected corpus of bishops' letters in Greek and Latin, the letter being the most significant mode of communication and information-transfer in the period from 410 to 590 CE. The volume brings together into a wider setting a wealth of previous international research on episcopal strategies for dealing with crises of various kinds. Six broad categories of crisis are identified and analysed: population displacement, natural disasters, religious disputes and religious violence, social abuses and the breakdown of the structures of dependence. Individual case-studies of episcopal management are provided for each of these categories. This is the first comprehensive treatment of crisis management in the late-antique world, and the first survey of episcopal letter-writing across the later Roman empire.
In these times of global economic crisis, social unrest towards the powers that be, and a yearning for alternative systems and organization, it is now more relevant than ever for you to take a critical stance to your management studies in order to analyse, understand and question the world around you and the capitalist stronghold in which you live and work.
This new thought-provoking text uses critical theory and revolutionary ideas to help you challenge the status quo and prevailing ideologies in management. It covers key issues, thinkers and topics in an accessible style to provide a broad and clear understanding of vital theory which is applied to the real world through international case studies and reflective questions and think points for you to carry into practice.
A companion website provides additional learning materials for personal study and class activities (www.sagepub.co.uk/dyer).
This text is essential reading for any undergraduate or postgraduate student studying critical management or any management course with a critical slant.
Companies have forgotten the art of strategic thinking. Existing strategic models, established decades ago, are obsolete in the current economy. Without the appropriate strategy tools, management has turned inward on issues such as reengineering and has relied upon shorter term market perspectives. As a result companies around the globe have failed or lost substantial parts of their market shares.
In Strategy in Crisis, Michael de Kare-Silver offers a unique model for corporate strategic planning. His "Market Commitment" model focuses on competitive advantage in performance, service, emotional connection with customers, and price. It instructs companies on how to develop a long term vision along with the necessary commitment to see it through, and demonstrates the link between a company's ability to connect with its customers and its ability to anticipate new opportunities.
A must-read for business people at all levels, Strategy in Crisis provides companies with a roadmap to the specific and sometimes new sources of competitive advantage that will drive future growth and success.
A Text on the Foundation Processes, Analytical Principles, and Implementation Practices of Engineering Risk Management
Drawing from the author's many years of hands-on experience in the field, Analytical Methods for Risk Management: A Systems Engineering Perspectivepresents the foundation processes and analytical practices for identifying, analyzing, measuring, and managing risk in traditional systems, systems-of-systems, and enterprise systems.
Balances Risk and Decision Theory with Case Studies and Exercises
After an introduction to engineering risk management, the book covers the fundamental axioms and properties of probability as well as key aspects of decision analysis, such as preference theory and risk/utility functions. It concludes with a series of essays on major analytical topics, including how to identify, write, and represent risks; prioritize risks in terms of their potential impacts on a systems project; and monitor progress when mitigating a risk's potential adverse effects. The author also examines technical performance measures and how they can combine into an index to track an engineering system's overall performance risk. In addition, he discusses risk management in the context of engineering complex, large-scale enterprise systems.
Applies Various Methods to Risk Engineering and Analysis Problems
This practical guide enables an understanding of which processes and analytical techniques are valid and how they are best applied to specific systems engineering environments. After reading this book, you will be on your way to managing risk on both traditional and advanced engineering systems.
