Many organizations operate under the assumption that the future will look fairly similar to the present. The reality is—that’s not often the case.

With disasters increasing in size and frequency, it’s critical to consider how disruptive changes in the broader environment can impact your people, mission, and operations.

David Kaufman, Vice President and Director for Safety and Security at CNA, shares how companies can overcome preconceived notions and recency bias to develop adaptive capacity in their emergency response efforts.

We discuss:

  • Bridging the gap between theory and reality in emergency planning
  • The confluence of trends leading to bigger and more frequent disasters
  • How the relationship between the public and private sector impacts response
  • Why rigid plans can be detrimental to emergency management
