MIS 509: Management Communication

Fall 2011


The process of managing a crisis involves developing a coherent strategy, timing messages, accurately

identifying the immediate and long term effects of a crisis, and communicating effectively with a

number of constituencies: the media, employees, clients, customers and other various stakeholders. To

this end, the purpose of a Crisis Communication strategy is to minimize the impact of the crisis on the

company’s ability to continue to function effectively. Crisis challenges demand finesse and the ability to

manage internal and external communication in both a persuasive and informative manner.

The purpose of this assignment is to prepare you and your team to recognize and solve a complex “real

world” communication problem surrounding a crisis situation. Your objective is to develop and execute

a communication strategy that will allow you to (1) achieve your purpose and goals, (2) communicate

critical and relevant information, and (3) identify and demonstrate key strategic initiatives a company

should utilize to manage a business crisis.
