When the stakes are highest for a government mission, effective leadership is essential.
“No one would think of putting a neophyte pilot in a multi-million dollar jet and trusting to luck. A medical student does not have unlimited access to cadavers, no matter how many persons will their bodies to science. Inexperienced gunners cannot learn to hit a target by reading books or listening to lectures. The acquisition of any skill requires practice, and if practice is not feasible in the real environment, simulations are the obvious answer.” — John R. Raser, "Simulation and Society" (1969)
Day to day operations often leave little room to rehearse for the kind of emergencies that can hugely impact a department or agency's effective operations. It is also often difficult to develop experience in responding to these situations since they occur less frequently. In crises it can be easy to forget good intentions or best practices and make knee-jerk decisions under pressure, or to rely on past practices that may or may not be appropriate to the current crisis conditions.
ICONS Crisis Management exercises are designed to help organizations on all levels prepare for potential disruptive events. Use ICONS simulations to:
- Practice how to respond and recover in a safe environment where failure has no real world consequences
- Help make leaders and personnel more resilient and better prepared for real crises
- Identify if your organization's plans for crisis will actually be effective
- Prepare to successfully meet your mission requirements under even the most adverse circumstances
Crises come in many forms. From public relations fiascos to natural disasters and everything in between. ICONS' broad experience and world class expertise can help your office, department, or agency be ready to respond.
