Although it stirred panic, this week’s 8.6-magnitude earthquake off the Indonesian coast did not cause a tsunami. It did serve as a successful test of the warning systems put in place after 2004’s devastating tsunami in South Asia–underscoring the importance of disaster preparedness at all levels.
In today’s post, we highlight three articles that explore crisis and disaster management, including a study on perceived organizational preparedness for coping with a major crisis or disaster; a look at how organizational leaders can better understand their environments so as to avoid such events, and develop plans to cope with them if they do occur; and an exploration of crisis preparedness focused on the U.S. tourism industry.
We hope you find this selection insightful and thought-provoking.
