To address some of your concerns and point a path forward, HBS is offering alumni a new five-part series of faculty-led programs on Crisis Management for Leaders. This free, alumni-exclusive series begins on Tuesday, March 24, and runs through Friday, April 10. Each interactive session will be presented via Zoom web-conference utilizing polling and Q&A features, and will be made available later in recorded format. These recent weeks have been a time of unprecedented change for all of us as we have adapted our businesses and our lives to deal with the coronavirus outbreak. For business leaders, managing risk in the midst of a global crisis is now “job one,” as uncertainty and change is taking place throughout our entire organizations.
Case Discussion: Chilean Mining Rescue and Summary
Faculty: Professors Amy Edmondson and Dutch Leonard
In this final session of the offering we will use the Chilean Mining Rescue case study to consider how the crisis response team confronted an unprecedented problem. What were the conditions at all three levels–senior executives, experts on the surface, and front-line workers trapped in the mine–that resulted in real-time problem solving. How do leaders confronted with the impossible present reality and give hope? The session will conclude with a discussion focused on what we have discovered through this series of conversations about identifying and managing novel risk and leading in the face of the COVID-19 crisis.
Thurs., April 9, 5:30–7:00 pm EST
