The Case for Proactive Risk/Crisis Evaluation
During the last 20 years, experts monitored the crisis readiness of the Fortune 500 companies and classified them in two groups:
- proactive companies that evaluated and prepared for crises;
- reactive companies that dealt with crises as they occurred.
The results of that long term monitoring effort were simple. The proactive companies:
- live longer
- face less crises
- do better in financial terms
- have a better corporate reputation
Crisis prepared companies:
- suffer fewer crises
- recover faster
- are more profitable
The frightening reality highlighted by this research was that less than 25 percent of the Fortune 500 companies were proactive!
