Welcome to the e-learning lesson on managing crisis. A key donor goes bankrupt. An office is flooded. An employee is caught embezzling. A program space is condemned. There are any number of events that can throw an organization into a state of crisis. For a nonprofit, which is often less resource-rich than its commercial counterparts, the results can be devastating. Preparing for crisis situations and responding appropriately to them to them can make the difference between closure and survival, or even flourishing. After all, crises can be fertile opportunities for learning and change, if an organization is equipped with the right tools to handle them.
