About this Unit
This unit explores the principles and practice of issues management in order to avoid crises, manage when one arises, and seek opportunities to learn and benefit from a crisis where possible, using effective communication. It investigates the development of crisis management plans, and the testing and implementing of these plans. Dealing with the media and pressure groups is covered, along with training a crisis communication team and organising a response to a crisis situation.
