New Zealand Crisis Management Programs for Council

Council in New Zealand comes with unique challenges.

A Crisis Management Program in New Zealand Council businesses requires a unique approach due to the country's geographical position and potential challenges. Situated within the Pacific Ring of Fire, New Zealand is prone to natural disasters like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and tsunamis. These unique circumstances necessitate a crisis management program that includes comprehensive risk assessments, contingency planning, and clear communication strategies. In addition, collaboration with government agencies, community engagement, and cultural sensitivity are key components when developing crisis management programs for New Zealand Council businesses. The program should focus on building resilience, preparing response teams, and fostering effective coordination among various stakeholders to mitigate the impact of crises.

how we do it

Four phases to completing your Crisis Management program.

Council organisations experience similar challenges here in New Zealand, but your unique situation will require unique solutions. Our four phase approach to the management and facilitation of our programs allows space for customisation. With strict processes, timelines, responsibilities, and project management procedures in place, Fixinc ensures that your programs are following best practice, and specific to you.

Phase 1

During the engagement phase of your Crisis Management program, you have the chance to get aquainted with your project team and validate the essential milestones linked to your project. This leads to potential outcomes such as:

Confirmation of project scope.
Development of implementation plan.
Assigning roles and responsibilities.

“Our resilience consultants are available to shoulder the burdens of your project. This ensures timely and cost-effective delivery. Here, you'll have a chance to meet them and build meaningful relationships."

Brad, Global Head of Consulting and co-Founder

Phase 2

Fixinc's Crisis Management analysis aims to assess your current capability level and identify the critical products and services that are crucial for your organisation's survival in the event of a disruption. The key outcomes that may arise from this analysis are:

Review current documents.
Analysing organisational products and services.
Review the current threat environment.

Developing comprehensive Crisis Management across your organisation requires a fundamental understanding of Council products and services and the critical business functions that support them. This knowledge is crucial to ensure a holistic approach to business resilience and one we take very seriously.

Phase 3

The development phase of a Crisis Management program yields tangible results and artefacts that can aid response teams in executing a well-structured and prompt response to any incident. The outcomes of this phase may include:

Develop incident response structure.
Develop recovery strategies.
Communication protocols.
Tools and checklists.

“The incident response plan serves as a framework to guide any Council response team in handling a disruption promptly. To be effective, the plan should be direct, adaptable, concise, and relevant.“

Ollie, Managing Director and co-Founder

Phase 4
The fourth phase aims to validate that the activities conducted in phases 1-3 are appropriate and fullfill their intended purpose. This phase also ensures that there is a continuous program of improvement in place. The key outcomes that may result from this phase are:
Response personnel training.
Scenario exercises.
Critical component testing.
Review and audit.
Maintenance program implementation.

An incident response plan should not be considered final until it has been thoroughly validated. The validation process should not only apply to the plan but also to the individuals who will be implementing it and threat landscape unique to Council in New Zealand.

The final component is regularly testing and refining your Crisis Management program.
