We look forward to welcoming you at our 5th international conference: “Better face it – All management is crisis management. Resilient organisations cope with the future’s challenges.”

As we did last year in Lisbon we opt for a formula with keynote speakers and workshops and will work with 3 tracks.
Track 1: Polarization / the new normal? Are we facing a society were fake news, mass manipulation techniques and propaganda are the norm?
Track 2: Cyber challenges / can we be prepared? Our fast moving digitizing environment is challenging us all. How can we benefit, and yet be safe navigating this cyber future?
Track 3: Business, crisis and resilience / Today’s managers live in the fast track! All management feels like crisis management. What are the lessons to be learned?
The aim of these workshops is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in risk management, crisis management, risk communication, crisis communication or any other domain related to risk and crisis. They are a platform to share knowledge and reflect on each other’s work and offer a unique opportunity to work together with worldwide peers.

Since our formula of keynote speakers and workshops was highly appreciated by the attendees of our past conferences, we are continuing on the same path. Our ambition this year is to provide even more participation during interactive workshops since this remains one of the main suggestions by the attendees of past editions. The aim of these workshops is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in risk management, crisis management, risk communication, crisis communication or any other domain related to risk and crisis.
Our world is a complex interactive process that is full of uncertainty and is often quite unpredictable. Our management systems are however based on predictability and certainty. If we accept that predictability and certainty are false gods, how else might we approach the task of management. If we accept uncertainty and non-predictability are ever present (where chaos is normal), what might we do differently?
The climate change adaptation and the higher frequency and financial consequences of disasters, are amongst the factors that boost the utilization of the concept of resilience way beyond its original scientific definition.
Given a constantly degrading and more and more instable, volatile economic environment Strategic Execution – the execution of strategy while re-organizing and restructuring operational activities – is becoming an increasingly important element of daily management. Constant change, re-prioritization and re-organization, quick decision making and related exposure to risks in a complex environment is becoming the rule. Risk Management is therefore a central part of Strategic Execution, as is it’s embedding into operational processes as well as its links to and integration with performance management.
Although counter productive, the gap between communications research and application continues to widen. Roger Kasperson accurately claims that this disparity cannot be overcome by a linear bridge, but a complex system of web like processes.
Our conference programme in Amsterdam consists of lectures by international keynote speakers, but we also make room for various workshops by CIP members. These six workshop were reviewed and selected from the proposals that we received as a result of our Call for Workshops.
In this presentation, Todd will introduce High Reliability Organizing (HRO), how we can identify complex potential incidents before they take place and how time-pressed professionals should shape their safety programs.
When something bad happens in an organization that upsets normal operations and occupies the attention of senior management, complex forces are unleashed that are difficult to manage from the outset. Despite the best of intentions, lawyers often undermine the organization’s interests in the response to crisis. Working together, lawyers and the companies they represent can learn to overcome outdated but long-held views of the lawyer’s role, to improve the company’s response to crisis.
