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 Studies on Identifying (or not) and Managing Novel Risks
Faculty: Professors Ananth Raman and Bob Kaplan
We will explore multiple different organizations responses to novel risk in the midst of a crisis. Examples will include Ericsson’s and Nokia’s responses to Albuquerque fire, Nissan versus Toyota after Fukushima, Swissgrid, and Airbus. We will use these examples to consider a series of actions and their effectiveness both in the specific context of the case and, more importantly, in the context of the crisis presented by COVID-19.
Tues., April 7, 8:30–10:00 am EST
Tues., April 7, 5:30–7:00 pm EST
