Here’s a downloadable basic primer on crisis management, for you – Happy New-ish Year!

In 2011 Mike Smith gave a presentation on political crisis management to The Art of Political Campaigning Conference* organised by Campaigns & Elections Magazine in Washington DC.

The presentation has been tidied it up and reformatted, and it now might be useful as a very basic crisis management tutorial, with obvious US, and election, taints!

It includes a number of crisis management failure case studies, some of which make depressing reading.

You can download it here – if you use it anywhere, please attribute!

 

* This is an annual conference – Mike presents most years, on such topics as crisis management, campaign organisation, strategy development, etc.
