Crisis Management Process Cycle

  • Prevent - identifying, assessing and mitigating risks that could result in a crisis.  In certain circumstance activities, risks may be so high that they should be suspended.

  • Prepare - making plans and making provisions if Prevention fails and a crisis develops.  Activities include devising and formulating CMP’s, creating CM structures and conducting exercises.

  • Foreseeable Issue - a full response is not yet required, but a Foreseeable Issue Management Team (FIMT) should be formed.  They place a prevention strategy before the crisis comes into effect

  • Respond - takes place as a follow on to a Foreseeable Issue or can occur when a spontaneous crisis emerges. Sub-phases are Contain, Control and Manage.

  • Recover - CMT takes measures to return the organisation to normal operations and activities as soon as possible.
