EMERGENCY, RISKS, AND CRISIS MANAGEMENT EMERGENCY AND RISK MANAGEMENT deal primarily with NATURAL disasters. CRISIS MANAGEMENT deals mainly with MAN-MADE or HUMAN-caused crises, such as: Computer hacking, environmental contamination, executive kidnapping, fraud, product tampering, sexual harassment, and workplace violence. Ian Mitroff Managing Crises Before They Happen By Milton Roberto de Almeida

12


Unlike natural disasters, human-caused crises are not inevitable.

They do not need to happen. For this reason, the public is extremely critical of those organizations that are responsible for their occurrence.

13


Crises are no longer an aberrant, rare, random, or peripheral feature of today’s society.

They are built into the very fabric and fiber of modern societies. All of us everywhere are impacted daily by crises larger or small.

Ian Mitroff Managing Crises Before They Happen

14


The vast majority of organizations and institutions have not been designed to antecipate crises or to

manage then effectively once they have occurred.

Neither the mechanisms nor the basic skills are in place for effective Crisis Management.

15


Most organizations still do not understand the “new management and thinking skills� required to head off crises.

CM is broader than dealing with crises alone. It provides a unique and critical perspective on the new management skills and the new types of organizations that will be required in the 21st century. Ian Mitroff Managing crises before they happen

ORGANIZATIONAL DEFENSE MECHANISMS By Ian Mitroff

(Denial) •Crises only happen to others. We are invulnerable. (Disavowal) •Crises happen, but their impact on our organization is small . (Idealization) •Crises do not happen to good organizations

17


(Grandiosity) •We are so big and powerful that we will be protected from crises.

(Projection) •If a crisis happens, it must be because someone else is bad or out to get us.

18


(Intellectualization) •We don’t have to worry about crises since the probabilities of their occurring are too small. •Before a crisis can be taken seriously, one would have to measure precisely its odds of occurrence and its consequences

(Compartmentalization) •Crises cannot affect the whole of our organization since the parts are independent one of another.

DEFINING CRISIS MANAGEMENT

Crisis management is the process by which an organization deals with a major event that threatens to harm the organization, its stakeholders, or the general public.

By Milton Roberto de Almeida

It is a discipline within the broader context of management consisting of skills and techniques required to identify, assess, understand, and cope with a serious situation, especially from the moment it first occurs to the point that recovery procedures start. 21


Crisis

Crisis Management Objectives General objectives of any interorganizational crisis response network:

ANTICIPATION A commitment to analyzing, attempeting to predict, forewarn, and steer clear of emerging crises.

PREPARATION Providing the planning, training, and collective responsibilities prior to a crisis.

RESPONSE Actually implementing the collective resolution arm when a crisis occurs.

WISDOM Learning tpgether from the event in order to prevent, lesson the severity of, or improve upon responses to future crises.

Crisis Variables Intensity Refers to the number of problems evident in a particular crisis. Intensity measures the number, not the variety of types, of problems encountered.

Complexity A crisis’s complexity rating measures the number of dimensions that a crisis crosses. Complexity is concerned with the different types of problems in the same emergency.

Familiarity The familiarity rating of a crisis is determined by the frequency of occurrence of the particular crisis in the resolution network. Michael J. Hillyard Public Crisis Management 26

b. Safety violations which could result in fines or legal action c. Customer allegations of overcharging or other improper conduct d. Investigation by a federal, state or local government agency e. Action by a disgruntled employee such as serious threats or whistleblowing f. Indications of significant legal/judicial/regulatory action against the business g.

33


In some instances crisis situations may be either sudden or smoldering, depending on the amount of advance notice and the chain of events in the crisis. Examples would include: Anonymous accusations Competitive misinformation Confidential information disclosed Equipment, product or service sabotage Misuse of chemical products Industrial espionage Disgruntled employee threats Investigative reporter contact http://www.crisisexperts.com/crisisdef_main.htm

Myths in Business Crisis Management The stereotype of business crises is industrial accidents, oil spills and bizarre crimes like terrorist bombings or the Tylenol incident. ICM's analysis of business crises since 1990 indicates these 'no-warning' crises are the minority. The majority are smoldering crises. In other words management knows about them before they go public.

http://www.crisisexperts.com/myths_main.htm By Milton Roberto de Almeida

36


Another fallacy is that most crises are caused by employee errors or natural disasters. The reality is that most newsworthy business crises are the results of management decisions, actions or inaction.

The accident had a large influence on the industry, particularly in the area of communication.

The Tenerife airport disaster occurred on March 27, 1977, when two Boeing 747 passenger aircraft collided on the runway of Los Rodeos Airport (now known as Tenerife North Airport) on the Spanish island of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. With a total of 583 fatalities, the crash is the deadliest accident in aviation history. By Milton Roberto de Almeida

Less experienced flight crew members were encouraged to challenge their captains when they believed something was not correct, and captains were instructed to listen to their crew and evaluate all decisions in light of crew concerns. This concept would later be expanded into what is known today as Crew Resource Management. CRM training is now mandatory for all airline pilots.

41


TEAM RESOURCES MANAGEMENT The offshore oil industry has traditionally functioned with a teamwork culture and many operations are managed by crews, shifts and groups working together. This course is based in a particular type of crisis management and operational philosophy and team training called crew resource management (CRM) which was developed by the aviation industry for flight deck crews but which is now being used in other domains, such as in merchant navy ships (e.g. Braathens-SAFE) and hospital operating theatres. CRM now is called, for several industries, TRM – Team Resources Management By Milton Roberto de Almeida

42


A US Airways jetliner crashed into the frigid Hudson River after a collision with a flock of birds disabled both its engines, sending more than 150 passengers and crew members scrambling onto rescue boats. Flight 1549 had just taken off from LaGuardia Airport en route to Charlotte, N.C., when the crash occurred in the river near 48th Street in midtown Manhattan. Miraculously, there were no deaths or serious injuries.

Was this luck? Was God looking over the crew and patients on board? Maybe. But why did this event have a happy ending? Crew Resource Management.

By Milton Roberto de Almeida

43


According to Wikipedia, Crew (or Cockpit) Resource Management (CRM) training originated from a NASA workshop in 1979 that focused on improving air safety. The CRM training approach has been adapted for use in industrial settings such as nuclear plants and offshore oil installations, particularly in control rooms and emergency command centres. In essence, CRM involves enhancing team members' understanding of human performance, in particular the social and cognitive aspects of effective teamwork and good decision making. By Milton Roberto de Almeida

44


CRM beyond aviation Further evidence of the success of CRM comes from the Danish company Maersk,. They introduced Crew Resource Management for their mariners in 1994, and have been running Rig Crew Resource Management since 1997 (Byrdorf, 1998). Incidents and accidents in Maersk shipping company have decreased by a third from one major accident per 30 ship years in 1992 (before the introduction of CRM training) to one major accident per 90 ship years in 1996 (after the introduction of CRM training). In addition, at the beginning of 1998 all insurance premiums were lowered by 15 percent. They attribute this reduction in accidents and incidents to combined use of CRM and simulator training. CRM training has been adopted by a number of other professions including anaesthetists (Howard et al., 1992), air traffic control, the nuclear power industry (Harrington & Kello, 1991), and aviation maintenance (Marx & Graeber, 1994).

COMMUNICATION Communication is considered as na interpersonal process that results in the exchange of information. Communication is necessary for effective decision making. It is fundamental to the implementation of decisions.

By Milton Roberto de Almeida

70


ASSERTIVENESS

By Milton Roberto de Almeida

71


By Milton Roberto de Almeida

72


There are four communication styles that exist along a continuum from which you can choose no matter the situation. Each style honors different parties’ rights and each brings about a different outcome.

1.Passive: Not standing up for yourself, or ineffectively doing so that your rights are easily violated; you allow others' rights to be more important than your own and cave in to others’ wants and needs denying your own;

2.Aggressive: Standing up for yourself in a way that violates the rights of others; you’re concerned with getting what you want without concern about others getting what they need;

3.Passive-aggressive: The indirect expression of anger or frustration; it appears passive and non-hostile but you sabotage the other person; you’re too indirect to assert your own needs so communicate in a manipulative way, like through gossiping in a covert attempt to defend your rights;

4.Assertive: Standing up for yourself in a way that respects the rights of others; you’re direct, honest and appropriate in expressing your feelings and opinions; By Milton Roberto de Almeida

73


74


Assertive people accept others’ rights are as important to them as yours are to you. When rights collide the assertive assumption is that you'll negotiate in a way that helps everyone get their most important needs met and their rights respected, which is easier said than done.

TABLETOP EXERCISES - TTX A tabletop exercise simulates an emergency situation in an informal, stressfree environment. The participants can be either people on a decision-making level, veterans of the organization, or new members, who gather around a table to discuss general problems and procedures in the context of an emergency scenario. The focus is on training and familiarization with roles, procedures, or responsibilities. No plan? No tools? No problem! A TTX is also a great way to build a response plan based on input from the exercise and can be accomplished with some basic preparation (just like a lesson plan) and without any special equipment.

By Milton Roberto de Almeida

Designing a TTX is Simple! There are eight simple steps you can use to design a TTX: Assess your needs Define the scope Write a statement of purpose Define TTX objectives Compose a narrative Write major and detailed messages List expected actions Prepare messages
