Après nous avoir présenté la Phase 1 dans la maîtrise de la gestion crise, Mark Dailey et Matthew Moth de Madano nous guident maintenant à travers les défis de la Phase 2. Pour les conseillers en communication, c’est à cette étape que commence le véritable travail : s’attaquer au cœur des problèmes de la crise, mettre en place des mesures d’urgence, puis travailler à améliorer la situation et à la transition vers des solutions permanentes. (Le billet est en anglais.)


This is the hard work. Getting to grips with the problems driving the crisis. Putting in place initial solutions and emergency measures and then working to make the situation better and transition to permanent solutions. The two key challenges for most companies are to make speedy progress and to communicate frequently enough – but with relevant, new information. You can over communicate by saying the same thing again and again.

Key actions: moving from an initial emergency stance to working the problem; keeping key business processes running; setting the timescale for full recovery and establishing key milestones; ensuring all relevant stakeholders are updated; keeping these key audiences fully apprised of progress.

What’s new today: staff can be the best crisis ambassadors if motivated, mobilised and kept in the loop (as much as is possible). Key official messaging has to be centralised and controlled – but wider brand communications benefits from less control and more trust.

What doesn’t work: delegating responsibility. CEOs need to assume full ownership and responsibility and keep it until the crisis is over.

What normally goes wrong: progress is too slow; no clear setting out of the route-map to a return to normalcy; no setting of milestones so progress can be measured; no mobilisation of staff to help with the wider brand/reputation impact; infrequent and/or inaccurate communications; poorly delegated leadership

Key communications deliverables: here’s the clear plan for how we’re working the problem and how we’ll get back to normal operating procedures.
