International Handbook of Organizational Crisis Management reflects the latest understanding of the field from prominent scholars and practitioners around the globe. Pushing the boundaries of crisis management research and practice, the handbook offers new frameworks and findings that capture insights and guidance for researchers and executives.
· Provides the latest thinking on and encourages growing support of crisis management in today's business environment: Novel and poorly understood technologies, globalization, changing political climates, and a shifting social landscape are just a few of the forces currently changing the ways in which organizations experience crises.
· Challenges core assumptions and goes beyond conventional rules: Numerous books touch on the topic, but many lack rigor with untested fear based prescriptions and quick fixes.
· Offers a diversity of angles and levels of analysis: Crisis management is analyzed from societal, interorganizational, organizational, and individual perspectives.
· Presents international and multicultural perspectives: Crises are not perceived in the same way globally; therefore, international researchers and practitioners expose their views of crisis management from their own cultural angles.
Offering a leading-edge overview of the field of crisis management, this resource is useful for researchers and thoughtful practitioners in business and management, psychology, and sociology. It can also be used in graduate courses such as Strategic Management and Business Policy, Corporate Strategy, Occupational/Industrial Psychology, and Communication Risk Management.
