Preparing to respond to a crisis



The COO

“I want our multinational to be ready for a major crisis so we know how to effectively respond”

No matter how much intelligence and insight you are able to glean, no risk can be completely avoided. Whether it’s a missing traveller, product contamination, blackmail, natural disasters or terrorist activity, for most organisations the best practice is to work on the premise that such events are not so much a question of ‘if’ as ‘when’.

 
 

AnotherDay has created a solution set speciffically geared to the art of response: what to do when external forces threaten to tear your organisation apart. In our experience, complex systems do not respond well to complex challenges: that’s why we prioritise flexibility and simplicity to enable and inform decision making, communication and action when the world is watching.

We work with a wide range of partners – technology vendors, social media analytics firms, reputation management consultants and insurers – to get the job done and provide our clients with confidence that the problem has been approached from every angle.

From working to nullify the effects and usability of breached data, to emergency drills to ready workforces for the unthinkable, our aim is to leave people feeling assured but not threatened whilst turning existential risk into future competitive advantage.

  • Our consultants have helped many organisations prepare flexible structures, whether at the national or multinational level, to deal with a potential crisis in the future and have helped cultivate relationships with key government stakeholders to support this objective. Crisis preparedness can be the difference between market success and existential failure.
    Our people have highly specialised skills which can be extremely effective in the midst of a crisis, and understand the rigours of decision making in the fast-paced, fluid environment which characterises a crisis.
    Understanding the cultural principles of our client’s organisations — commercial, charity or government — and the places in which they work is critical to the continued success of our consulting and implementation programmes.
    We ensure that we always have access to the most relevant linguistic skills for the task at hand, with a focus on Arabic, Spanish, Mandarin and Russian.
    Our consultants pride themselves on being able to operate and communicate with very senior stakeholders and to simplify complex issues.
    Our commercial experience spanning a wide range of sectors means we work collaboratively with clients to understand exactly where business value lies, making it easier to protect from risk and the shock of crisis.
    We use suites of specialist, integrated software platforms to manage our responses to crises and to assist our clients in doing the same.
    We make all of our consultants, implementers and responders globally more effective by using specialised collaboration platforms deployed on encrypted devices: this enables them to share and understand information across our organisation more efficiently, increasing quality and decreasing delivery timeframes.
    Our intelligence collected and collated in-house is permanently stored and intelligently disseminated so it can inform and direct our strategic consulting and capacity building programmes for other clients.
    Our network of trusted local sources can provide us with detailed ground truth information from a wide range of locations, as well as a local perception pertaining to a varied spectrum of issues.
    The decreasing cost of satellite and geospatial imagery means that we can use this type of information to assist consulting projects very effectively, particularly for understanding an area remotely or an asset to be protected.
    We continuously analyse huge amounts of social media output, up to 50 billion online conversations, with our technology partner to gain real-time and historical intelligence which can complement other types of analysis.
