To paraphrase the eminent Dr. Robert L Pfaltzgraff Jr., crises prediction may be the result of a failure of imagination or the inability to connect informational dots properly. What is deemed as unlikely is demoted as a focus of preparatory efforts. The unfamiliar becomes the highly improbable.
We discard bits of information that may have enabled us to prepare for a crisis because we are unable to think of abstract threats. We lose or overlook clues that may give us advance warning. We don’t know what we don’t know and are incapable of thinking about the unknown.
In a crisis, we can only react with what we know. Through the combination of leveraging technology, tools, and expertise of analytics, we can not only aid in critical decision support in times of crisis, we may be able to foretell and prevent a crisis altogether.
In this webinar, Chief Intelligence Officer for Firestorm, Karen Masullo, will discuss how you can work toward eliminating crisis surprise, disaster denial and self-deception by using technology and analysis to identify potential issues before they evolve into a crisis.
