Critical Situation Management Training

About this course

Responding to critical situations with a structured management framework & communications plan…

With today’s rapidly changing business environment coupled with the need to be fast to market, critical situations are unfortunately becoming something that every organisation has to deal with…

Nothing can prepare an organisation for every situation, but as with all areas of business there are guidelines that can establish effective management without adding to the problem by seeking an equitable solution.

Problems often manifest into a critical situation causing a significant distraction from delivering service elsewhere:

  • Severe Technology Or Service Failure
  • Breach Of Company Obligations
  • Manifesting & Unresolved Customer Problem

‘…research has proven that when a problem is managed professionally and effectively the chance of customer retention is greatly increased. In fact customers accept problems if they are well managed…’
