About

Examine the crisis management cycle, including risk analysis and mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery, and learning, with an emphasis on humanitarian emergencies. This course focuses on developing leadership and management skills for crises situations. In your online coursework, you will explore the dynamics and processes (individual, group, institutional, bureaucratic, and psychological) that impact leadership decision-making in times of crisis. This aims to help you decipher patterns of decision-making, leadership, and organizational design that appear effective (or ineffective) in forecasting, preparing for, managing, communicating about, and learning from crises. You will gain a common set of perspectives and tools to more effectively navigate a wide range of crises including humanitarian emergencies, political instability, natural disasters, health pandemics, industrial accidents, financial crises, and foreign policy crises.
