A month of crisis and issues management comes to an end

October 22, 2010 Jonathan Hemus

It’s the final day of our 28 day review of organisations in crisis management mode, and it’s a quick post before the day is done.  But fear not, we’ll be analysing the month of crises and issues and posting our insights and recommendations early in November.

The final organisations under the media spotlight and engaged in crisis or issues management are:

The Royal Navy: military; security, safety and environmental concerns as submarine runs aground

Catholic Church: religious organisation; criminal act – former priest jailed for child abuse

Legal & General: financial services; management failure – financial figures released two weeks early in error

Kent Count Council: local government; cutbacks – 1,500 job cuts announced

These four organisations are among more than one hundred who found themselves in the media spotlight over the last 28 days.  As a consequence, they all had to take steps to protect their reputation: not all of the incidents involved nuclear submarines, but every organisation concerned was fighting to prevent their situation going ballistic.
