Example text

This expenditure decreases over the course of time because the assessment of developments becomes simpler and, therefore, cheaper. By the time a crisis is detected using conventional instruments, the cost is zero. It becomes clear, therefore, that it is not the realization ‘at the earliest stage’ but ‘early enough’ in the sense of giving sufficient time for reactions that must be the objective of early warning systems to avoid crises.

It starts with the identification of a crisis situation. While dealing with the causes of crisis and while stopping them, all management instruments need to be employed to limit the consequences and to bring the crisis situation to an end. During the following phase of the recovery, all activities aim at overcoming the momentary negative consequences of the crisis. That includes the part of the ‘lessons learned’ through which the organization aims at avoiding future crises by learning from the present situation.

Impulsive behaviour is driven by affective reactions: this almost automatic behaviour can be traced back to situative and personal factors.
