Project #83131 - Image and Crisis Communication: Lauda Air Flight 004 – 223 dead

Introduction

Your readings throughout this course have provided many example of companies whose image prior to and during the crisis adversely affect its outcome. Companies with public good will, a strong financial position, or that exhibit large amounts of empathy to crisis victims undoubtedly come out ahead of companies doing the opposite. Perception and appropriate involvement with the media can be powerful tools during times of crisis. In this assignment, you will make your own judgment of the power of perception and media interaction to positively or negatively affect a crisis outcome.
