Assess Crisis Management for Selected Organization
All aspects of crisis management are brought together for the final module. In order to be prepared for a crisis, an organization not only needs a preparedness plan, but also the right leadership that is ready to respond to the crisis. The final paper will require a framework with some detail to be developed for the chosen organization.
Using previous information from Assignments 2-3 and Assignment 4 and considering the areas below, provide a paper that assesses crisis management for the chosen organization. Be sure to use subheadings that should cover the following areas with respect to crisis management:
Organization and attributes
Types of crisis
Leadership needed for success
Models and theories used
Preparedness Planning and Development Phases
SLP Assignment Expectations
Length: This Case Assignment should be at least 10 pages not counting the title page and references. Paper format: (a) Cover page, (b) Header, (c) Body. Including an Abstract page/opening. The abstract begins on a new page and includes the page header. The word Abstract (no bold, italics, underlining) is centered on the first line of the page.
On the next line begins a brief yet succinct summary (abstract) of the main points of the paper. The summary is a single double-spaced paragraph and is not indented. It is typically between 150 and 250 words and includes the research topic, research questions, participants, methods, results, data analysis, and conclusions.
References: At least two references should be included from academic sources (e.g. peer-reviewed journal articles). Required readings are included. Quoted material should not exceed 10% of the total paper (since the focus of these assignments is critical thinking). Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it MUST be enclosed in quotes. The references should be cited within the text and also listed at the end of the assignment in the References section (preferably in APA format).
Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to question.
The following items will be assessed in particular:
Relevance (e.g. all content is connected to the question)
Precision (e.g. specific question is addressed. Statements, facts, and statistics are specific and accurate).
Depth of discussion (e.g. present and integrate points that lead to deeper issues)
Breadth (e.g. multiple perspectives and references, multiple issues and factors considered)
Evidence (e.g. points are well-supported with facts, statistics and references)
Logic (e.g. presented discussion makes sense, conclusions are logically supported by premises, statements, or factual information)
Objectivity (e.g. avoid use of first person and subjective bias)
