The book examines crisis management for operations located outside of a corporation’s normal confines, particularly in regions that might be overtly threatening or hostile to multinational corporations, their employees, and assets. Outlining proper operating procedures, planning, implementation, and drills, it demonstrates how proper planning and effective management systems established prior to a crisis can mean the difference between life and death.
