Crisis Preparation, Management and Response
Prepare. Respond. Emerge Stronger.
Take PwC's Global Crisis Survey 2021 - an after-action assessment of the business community's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. You'll receive an immediate personalised benchmark report that measures your experience compared to your peers - so that you can learn, take action, build resilience and emerge stronger.
Sixty-five percent of the CEOs said they’d experienced at least one crisis in the past three years. And, more than 30% of CEOs predict they will face more than one crisis in the next three years. It’s no longer a matter of if an unplanned event will hit - it is a matter of when.
But there is a silver lining. According to the responses of CEOs, 39% of them tell us their ability to manage a crisis well has actually contributed positively to revenue growth. To realize the positive value of crisis planning, companies need to give it the same level of importance and support that they would do for more tangible parts of business operations.
Nearly 60% of CEOs say they are ‘extremely’ or ‘somewhat concerned’ about their readiness to respond to crisis, according to PwC’s latest CEO Survey. With threats evolving, the best defense is a crisis-fit plan. What does that mean?
Instead of trying to prepare for every possible future scenario, have a strategy for the top three to five threats you need to most worry about today. Then back it up with a crisis playbook, a strategic cross-functional response team and workforce training.
PwC’s Crisis Preparedness Assessment is an interactive, web-based platform that objectively quantifies and benchmarks an organization's crisis preparedness. It leverages PwC’s crisis management framework, built from international standards, leading practices, and our client experience, to deliver algorithmic analysis of your existing crisis management program, maturity scoring and benchmarking, and recommendation roadmapping.
