In today's fast-paced world, crises can emerge from many directions, and the consequences can be far-reaching. Responding to a crisis requires a nuanced and tailored approach, carefully designed to suit each organisation's unique circumstances and needs. Acting quickly and effectively is key.
While crises can appear unique at first glance, the root causes are often similar. Addressing governance issues, setting and managing risk appetite, and tackling cultural challenges, for example, play a key role in preventing crises and mitigating their impact.
