Crisis Management Gap Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has put an unprecedented strain on organisations and highlighted critical resilience vulnerabilities. The ability to objectively analyse how well crisis management teams have managed the crisis and how well prepared they are for the future is more essential than ever.

Crisis Management Gap Analysis provides stakeholders with an impartial, expert-led analysis of your organisation's crisis management structures and processes currently in place. It helps you anticipate, adapt, and respond to major disruptions, ensuring that your employees and assets are safeguarded while supporting operational continuity.

 

HELPING YOU THROUGH THE STAGES OF A CRISIS

All organisations may be challenged with a crisis at some point. We can support your organisation to better navigate through the three stages of a crisis: pre-crisis, crisis response and post-crisis, and achieve a heightened level of resilience.

We use an established methodology developed with our 35 years of experience and expertise in supporting the health, safety and security of employees of organisations in all types of industries around the world. The analysis focuses on the lifecycle of a crisis, providing your organisation with an objective view of your current approach and the direction you can move in. This process is built through stakeholder interviews, documentary analysis and a review of existing processes by our security and health experts.

As part of our support, you receive a comprehensive gap analysis that identifies and assesses your organisation's current approach to crisis and risk management and outlines company-specific recommendations to minimise the risks posed to your employees and assets. Our experts will provide specific recommendations to address existing gaps and areas identified for improvement. These are developed based on the findings of the gap analysis and are prioritised based on importance and urgency.
