Disaster Management

How to Manage in Case of a Disaster? Bonjour, I am looking for a guide on what executive managers should do in case a disaster hits their company. What are the dos and don'ts? Thank you.

Disaster Management and Preparation

Ideally, a business continuity plan should already have been made, communicated (!) and practiced (!) BEFORE any crisis ever occurs. You can find more about contingency planning and GENERIC HELP AND HINTS on dealing with crises in our center on Crisis Management.
The terms "Disaster Management", "Crisis Management" and "Contingency Management" are used interchangeably in management practice, although they are theoretically not entirely the same.

Disaster versus Crisis Management

A CRISIS is crucial or decisive point or situation; a turning point. An unstable situation, in political, social, economic or military affairs, especially one involving an impending abrupt change.
A DISASTER is an unexpected natural or man-made catastrophe of substantial extent causing significant physical damage or destruction, loss of life or sometimes permanent change to the natural environment.
A disaster is one cause for a crisis amongst others.
So as nouns the difference between crisis and disaster is that a crisis is a crucial or decisive point or situation; a turning point while disaster is an unexpected natural or man-made catastrophe of substantial extent causing significant physical damage or destruction, loss of life or sometimes permanent change to the natural environment.
