Crisis Management and Business Continuity

July 29 - August 2, 2019

Preparing for a crisis is not a luxury; it is a necessity. You know the odds are high that your company will suffer a disaster or crisis at some point. You cannot say you weren't ready; today's extreme public and government scrutiny demand that you should have been prepared.

MIT's "Crisis Management & Business Continuity" will help prepare you for the inevitable.

This comprehensive course provides up-to-date assessments and knowledge on issues that affect you - terrorism, pandemic, cyber security, communications, news media - from the experts involved with these efforts. You will have the opportunity to interact with these lecturers and with peers from industry and government.

By the end of the course, you will have the tools, knowledge, and understanding to benchmark, assess, and improve your business continuity, disaster recovery, and crisis management program. This includes the Course Manual (print and/or e-files), templates, and current articles. You will gain valuable contacts, have plenty of networking opportunities, and acquire insights for immediate implementation.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This course is for the Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, Emergency Management, and Crisis Management practitioner or responder as well as for the executive who oversees these disciplines. Other staff who would benefit from this course include corporate executives, directors, and staff from IT/MIS, Environment Health & Safety, Risk Management, Public Relations, Human Resources, and Security. This course is also suited for federal, state, and local government officials and Emergency Managers.

Both novices and experienced personnel will benefit greatly from this course. If you cannot go, tell your director/executive so he/she can attend to better understand your complex profession.

Greater Boston Executive Program

March 7, 2026 - April 25, 2016

The Greater Boston Executive Program (GBEP) prepares high-potential professionals for executive leadership. By incorporating new research concepts and management practices, this intensive, eight-week program helps executives to enhance their people management skills, leadership capabilities, and ability to direct and carry out necessary organizational changes. Participants will learn how to apply findings from the behavioral sciences to build stronger organizations and graduate better equipped to lead change, organize for innovation, and manage an increasingly technical workforce. The program’s frameworks and modules are complemented by the small class size, close student-faculty interaction, and the diversity of topics and participant backgrounds.


The course will be held on eight consecutive Mondays (9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.) beginning March 7, 2016. Participants who complete the program will receive both a GBEP certificate of completion and an MIT Sloan Executive Education Certificate in Management and Leadership.


Course curriculum is divided into three main topic areas:


Leadership
The leadership-focused sessions will introduce participants to MIT’s Four Capabilities Leadership Framework, a powerful tool for understanding and integrating four critical components of leadership—sense-making, relating, visioning, and inventing. This segment of the course will develop the participants’ ability to practice these capabilities through cases, experiential exercises, role-plays, videos, and self-assessments.


Organization Change
Organizations are changing rapidly in an increasingly uncertain world; dealing with these changes requires new skills and attitudes on the part of managers. This segment is concerned with the strategic, political, and cultural aspects of leading individuals and groups within and among organizations. Understanding how organizations and groups behave and change is necessary if managers are to act effectively in their current and future positions. Participants will engage in case discussions, small group problem solving exercises, and a computer simulation designed to provide insight and skill when leading organizational change.


Strategic Human Resource Management
While employees have always been central to the functioning of organizations, today they have taken on an even more critical role in the building of a firm’s competitive advantage. The effective employment of human resources in order to improve company performance is the essence of human resource management. This segment of the course approaches personnel and HRM problems and challenges from the general manager’s standpoint, combining up-to-date research findings with case materials and views HR theory and practice in light of current and emerging trends in the workplace.
