The Webinar: Surviving Meltdowns That Can’t Be Prevented
Employing case studies of companies from a range of industries, we have developed a 2-hour webinar to help managers and board members gain an effective understanding of the exposure arising from the unknown and how to address it in their respective roles. We deliver this webinar online to help participants learn about a disciplined framework to address the un-anticipatable and how to develop and implement it.

Organizations become victims of meltdown crises because of a very common oversight. This oversight consists of the failure to distinguish between extreme exposure from the known, or what can be envisioned, and extreme exposure from the unknown, or what can’t be envisioned. The implications of this oversight can be profound when faced with a meltdown crisis. The approach that works in everyday life is predicated upon the ability to prevent and mitigate adversities, and is not useful against catastrophic adversities that can’t be envisioned and prevented.

This oversight leads to a false sense of security, as managers may not realize that, despite their emphasis on disciplined risk management, the unknown remains unaddressed … until facing a crisis.

It sounds simple and easy to correct, but it is not. Appreciating this difference is only the first, but a critical step in addressing the unknown. It also requires an explicit approach to develop and implement a framework of solutions to ensure that the organization can survive meltdowns that can’t be prevented.

The Webinar:
The webinar includes conceptual analyses, discussions of examples and case studies, and steps to develop and implement the framework. It requires no prior background in risk management or quantitative models, and is delivered free of jargons or quant formulas. 

What will participants learn from the Webinar?
The Webinar covers the following:

  • What are the critical characteristics of the exposure arising from unknown?
  • How do they differ from the characteristics of the exposure dealt with in everyday life?
  • What are the implications of these differences?
  • How do the unknowns evolve into crises?
  • Why do we need a different approach?
  • What should be the objective of the approach to address the un-anticipatable?
  • What are the critical mistakes organizations make in addressing the unknown?
  • How to develop and implement a framework to accomplish this objective?
  • What kinds of top-down guidelines and limits are needed?
  • What are the best practices in relation to the un-anticipatable?
