Crisis management

Holistic management (3.135) process (3.180) that identifies potential impacts (3.107) that threaten an organization (3.158) and provides a framework for building resilience (3.192), with the capability for an effective response that safeguards the interests of the organization’s key interested parties (3.124), reputation, brand and value­ creating activities (3.1), as well as effectively restoring operational capabilities. Note 1 to entry: Crisis management also involves the management of preparedness (3.172), mitigation (3.146) response, and continuity (3.49) or recovery (3.187) in the event of an incident (3.111), as well as management of the overall programme through training (3.265), rehearsals and reviews (3.197) to ensure the preparedness, response and continuity plans stay current and up-to-date.

ISO22300 (DRAFT 2017) 8


Sudden, urgent, usually unexpected occurrence or event (3.82) requiring immediate action. Note 1 to entry: An emergency is usually a disruption (3.70) or condition that can often be anticipated or prepared for, but seldom exactly foreseen.

Guidance Methodology

A structured approach from designing a trial to evaluating the outcomes and identifying lessons learned


Guidance Tool

A software tool that guides trial design, execution and evaluation in a step-by-step way including as much of the necessary information as possible in form of data or references to the portfolio of solutions



The ability of diverse systems and organisations to work together, i.e. to interoperate.

ISO 22397

Legacy systems

(Crisis management) system currently in operational use.

Lesson Learned

Lessons learning: process of distributing the problem information to the whole project and organization as well as other related projects and organizations, warning if similar failure modes or mechanism issues exist and taking preventive actions

Portfolio of Solutions (PoS)

A database driven web site that documents the available Crisis Management solutions. The PoS includes information on the experiences with a solution (i.e. results and outcomes of trials), the needs it addresses, the type of practitioner organisations that have used it, the regulatory conditions that apply, societal impact consideration, a glossary, and the design of the trials.
