Having responded to over 20 crises over the past 15 years, Left of Boom understands the impact that a crisis can have on an organisation and the importance of a strategic and integrated response. We have taken all of the lessons we have learned from crisis events and codified these into battle-proven plans and realistic training that readies leaders to deal with the worst case situations.
Importantly, we back this with contemporary advice so that when crisis strikes, you can be assured that your leaders are prepared for any situation. Our approach ensures that organisations have the appropriate interdependent plans, structure and training that builds trust and confidence in their response capability, and their stakeholders feel better engaged and empowered during a real crisis.
Left of Boom’s approach to developing organisational Crisis Management capability focuses on assessing the organisational readiness against the 11 fundamentals of crisis preparedness, and building a tailored program to meet any identified gaps.
Our approach combines a survey, desktop review of materials, tour of facilities and interviews with key leaders. We combine the findings into a report that is used to tailor the program to your specific requirements.
Using the analysis from the survey and review, we identify the organisational crisis traits, and tailor a program that addresses any gaps in crisis capability. By doing this, we aim to empower your leaders at all levels to respond proactively and with confidence to any emerging situation.
When developing plans we help identify the relevant crisis, issues and disruptive event scenarios across the business and build out the appropriate organisational structure, supported by the necessary subject matter expertise, plans and checklists to enable an effective response. We will help develop any necessary crisis management, incident management and business continuity plans required to ensure the best preparedness for your organisation. We can develop your plans using our existing templates, or take a more tailored approach, engaging with a variety of risk owners and internal Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to ensure the plans are relevant and fit for purpose. We can facilitate this development process. Example plans may include:
- Crisis Management Plan/ Business Continuity Plans
- Cyber Crisis Response Plans
- Ransom decision process
- Notifiable Databreach Plans
- Stakeholder and Issues Management Plans
