We provide you with foresight
Our approach as business and project enablers is analytical. We employ state-of-the-art analytical techniques, which have been developed and implemented by leading Western intelligence agencies over the last 15 years. Through our international network we have substantial data which keep us at the front foot of current events. We supply strategic insights, threat assessments, human terrain mapping and analytical training.
We determine your risks and exposure
All risks are a function of threats, vulnerability and degree of exposure. After analysing and ranking the relevant threats, we do a vulnerability and exposure assessment of the organisation. This involves evaluating staff, structures, systems and their interaction. We advise on documentation including policies, procedures and plans. Finally, we examine patterns of movement and exposure both historically and expected.
We strengthen your resilience
Ultimately, resilience is a measure of how well the organisation handles uncertainty. Based on the organisational risk profile we advise on implementation of Duty of Care. We suggest improvements to structures, policies, plans and procedures to enhance situational awareness, agility and preparedness – building your resilience to adversity. No matter how well we analyse, how carefully we plan, train and equip staff, things go wrong. There will be incidents with a varying degree of seriousness. Most projects and organisations are statistically bound to face a major crisis every 5 years – even in more stable settings.
We make you emerge stronger from crises
Ideally organizations emerge stronger from a crisis. The quality of your intervention is a function of your preparedness. Odds are better, if resources have been allocated, and a response plan has been developed prior to a crisis. When a crisis hits, taking ownership is critical. Gathering appropriate information, timely analysis, deliberate decisions, identifying and mapping key stakeholders and communicating clearly are bedrock elements in crisis management. Then, acting as a team and holding to your values is equally important. We train you in all aspects and put your crisis management team to the test, in fast-paced realistic scenarios.
