    How to survive a crisis

    Coincidental bad luck can easily cause a situation to spiral out of control. By then, it might be next to impossible to pull things back together, and there’s a real crisis to manage rather than just a local emergency. Slow burning crises, and bad luck, happen more often than they should in the world of business and politics. Professor Sir David Omand, formerly both a director of GCHQ and the UK’s Security and Intelligence Coordinator, shows how to manage crises in myriad forms, using methodologies employed by the British intelligence agencies. Through examples from his storied career, including from the COBRA room in government, to lessons from historic crises such as Chernobyl or the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, he equips you with military intelligence techniques such as situational awareness and adaptive resilience that can be used in any crisis, from the professional to the personal.
