At PM we firmly believe in gaming simulation as an alternative way of learning about risk, crisis and change. To provide organisations with a fun, accessible and effective way of preparing for crisis, we have developed a brand new card game: Calamity Cards.
It is with great pleasure that we announce an exclusive partnership with Merlin, one of the leading suppliers for crisis management software. At PM we are convinced software helps crisis teams by supporting the crisis organisation, information flow and decision making process. Merlin’s CrisisSuite is the first tool we came across that does exactly that. As all PM advisors are certified to implement CrisisSuite, we will be sharing more about the tool and its features in 2020. For now, we toast the newfound partnership with our friends from Merlin.
Every once in a while we see a movie, television series or concert that we can’t seem to shake off. I had such an experience recently when I watched Ari Aster’s second feature film Midsommar. As I’m quite a big fan of horror and therefore love what filmmakers like Ari Aster and Jordan Peele are doing for the genre, I was highly anticipating this movie. Not only did it exceed my expecations, its depiction of empathy is remarkable. Bear with me as I make my way through the main plot (spoiler free!) before diving into empathy.
La gestion de crise ne devient un sujet de préoccupation qu’à partir du moment où on en traverse une. Il n’est pas rare de sous-estimer la probabilité d’enclenchement d’une crise. Parfois on se dit même que la production d’une crise est peu probable voire impossible et pourtant, tôt ou tard, elle surviendra. Que faire face à une crise ce moment-là? Comment s’organiser? Comment prendre les meilleures décisions lorsque qu’une crise survient?
Early August 2018, Stijn Pieters gave an interview in the radio show De Wereld Vandaag on the Flemish public radio station Radio 1. Crisis communication about a famous event being talked about around the globe, and how to react when you suddenly find yourself in the head of the storm. Those were the topics.
