Crisis happens only to companies in trouble, it is always somebody's fault, it is always destructive, and a lot of it in an organization indicates an inability to manage crisis effectively ... right? Wrong! Despite the fact that most executives surveyed claim to spend at least seventy-five percent of their time putting out fires, most businesspeople continue to cling to these and other dangerously outdated myths about crisis. The truth is, in today's ever more chaotic, fiercely competitive global marketplace, crisis is an inescapable fact of life for every business organization - especially the ambitious ones. In fact, many top business thinkers now view crisis as an indispensable catalyst for strategic growth and competitive strength. Now, in this groundbreaking new book, Michael Silva - author of the bestselling, Creating Excellence - and Terry McGann, arm you with a blueprint for success in these crisis-ridden times. Offering important practical lessons in strategic crisis management, they school managers in all the cutting-edge leadership and management skills they need not only to survive crisis, but to use it to forge stronger, more competitive companies. Drawing on their years of experience as crisis management consultants to the Fortune 500, as well as the experiences of dozens of companies whose stories they vividly tell, Silva and McGann separate crisis management myth from reality and provide a rational and innovative framework for thinking about and responding to crisis; help you to recognize and leverage the opportunities that crises present for changing the rules of the game and making strategic breakthroughs; help you to forge a new organizational vision founded upon thethree crucial factors of crisis prevention, crisis identification, and crisis solution; offer crisis management guidelines based on the golden rules of Vision (see it all, see it fast), Values (say it all, say it fast), and Versatility (change it all, change it fast); and b
