Litigation is notoriously time-consuming and unpredictable. This masterclass addresses how to avoid litigation where possible and how to manage the litigation process in the most cost-effective and transparent way. It will look at how best to develop an aligned relationship with your lawyers and manage business expectations. Delegates will learn how to minimize the impact of a crisis and negative publicity whether as a result of litigation or otherwise. They will then work through a case study to simulate aspects of crisis management, analyse a framework of crisis management and learn best practice processes so they can make all the necessary preparations for any such eventuality in their own organisation.
Topics covered will include:
- Effective strategies for avoiding and managing litigation
- When and how to use external funding and technology
- Reducing the impact on management time through good project management
- Understanding the importance of preparation and training
- Reviewing the framework for managing a crisis by covering all three of its stages: Prepare/ Respond/Recover
- The united organisational approach to crisis preparedness and response
- Creating a relevant and current Crisis Management Plan
