Nine Lessons for Turning Crisis into Triumph. by James Lee Witt, James Morgan.

James Witt is the former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In "Stronger in the Broken Places" he takes his knowledge and experiences and develops a plan for dealing with disaster. His experience has taught him that there are four critical times when you can deal with an emergency. The first is to anticipate it as a possibility and prepare for it.

Working in much the same way as epidemiologists who formerly might have taken government jobs. a master of disaster. -The Wall Street Journal.

From the former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, how to manage your business in the face of challenge, change, and potential disasterFor James Lee Witt, the man who rebuilt America's emergency response system, the most inspiring and effective lessons-about responsibility, team building, planning, and taking action-have guided real-life heroes through extraordinary situations. These lessons can be applied to business to guide you through the pressures you face each week-or once in a career or a lifetime. Whether describing earthquake preparation in California, moving a Missouri town out of a floodplain, or shoring up walls and spirits after the Oklahoma City bombing, Witt captures the moments when leaders step forward, how they motivate others, and what they need to triumph over adversity. Witt's home-spun wisdom teaches us to "Tear Down the Stovepipes" to build effective teamwork by thinking horizontally, not vertically; to find energizing people who improve morale, whether a V.P.'s secretary or a key client, since "A Lightning Rod Works Both Ways"; and to establish systems for capturing what happens-what goes right and what goes wrong-to ensure that every challenge leaves you "Stronger in the Broken Places." To bring home the ten lessons in this inspiring and useful book, Witt shares examples and strategies from corporations-from Malden Mills and Intel to Swissair and Kmart-who have overcome crisis by applying the same principles to their business every day.

James Witt is the former director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In "Stronger in the Broken Places" he takes his knowledge and experiences and develops a plan for dealing with disaster. His experience has taught him that there are four critical times when you can deal with an emergency. The first is to anticipate it as a possibility and prepare for it. The second is once you understand it you can make plans to prevent it or mitigate its effects. The third is when and how you respond to the emergency. And the last opportunity is during the recovery phase.
"Stronger in the Broken Places" clearly explains how businesses, communities, or even individuals can work through a potential crisis. Thorough in its coverage of crisis management, it starts with examining your company's values since everything you do will have to be based on your company value system and priorities. From there it follows a logical progression through communication, changing priorities, identifying strengths, keeping employees encouraged and functioning well during a disaster, re-evaluating the plan, etc. One of the best texts on managing through a major crisis, it is filled with multiple examples from real life that make it a truly educational read while driving home the important points. A recommended read for business leaders and others who may be involved in crisis management.

If he'd only gotten to pg. 45 Michael Brown could have been a hero instead of a goat during the Katrina response. On that page he would have learned that "some of FEMA's most spectacular failures had been due to a lack of communication . . . state and local officials had expected the agency to simply move in and take charge . . . when the agency didn't hear from them through a formal disaster declaration it as assumed that they didn't need FEMA's help." Guess what happened again in Katrina?

Witt (FEMA boss during the Clinton years) provides summaries of a number of prior disasters, lessons learned, and nine lessons to apply to businesses in crises.

Worth reading.

I found this book to be a good outline for handling a crisis. It gets slow sometimes in describing the events the author was involved in but overall the message and points are sound. I struggled a little since he is a Clintonite, having served with Slick Willie and he talks and teaches of integrity while at the same time loving Bubba ... but that doesnt take away from the job hes done at FEMA or the lessons he is passing along. Good book.
