Maintaining the juggling act without dropping the ball

Multiskilling or multitasking as it is sometimes referred too, is a terminology given to the process of individuals or teams who have the experience, knowledge and the ability to carry out more than one key task competently.

In layman terms it is maintaining the juggling act, being able to keep several things in motion at the same time, and usually with minimal resources at hand.

It is a very fortunate ECC commander or OIM who have such people in their teams as their ability to launch and manage several actions/tasks simultaneously during an emergency would be invaluable. By doing so they are inevitably being proactive, which is another essential management style needed by emergency management and response personnel.

The key element to ensuring multiskilling/tasking works is to assign all tasks with completion or action times and constantly monitor progress and development, a cyclic approach of management.

This management style and skills set will bring most emergency situations under control and eventually bring about the end to the heightened threat, and by doing so will save life and maintain the company’s reputation.

The difference between a Democratic Consultative briefing style and an Authoritarian Autocratic briefing style

Democratic from the noun Democracy or for and by the people.
Autocratic meaning single person responsible for all decisions.

A “Democratic” briefing style is one that permits views from all relevant team members to be taken into consideration during the briefing. It takes into account all points of view and rational before a decision is reached. This can be extremely time consuming and can inevitably result in no positive decision being taken. In an emergency situation this style of briefing would only be used when there was no appointed leader or responsible figurehead in position due to circumstance and the control team must act rapidly to avert disaster. During aftermath investigations no specific person could be held accountable for any decision whether right or wrong.

An “Authoritarian” briefing style is one where a singular person is responsible for the control of the whole group and he/she alone makes the decisions and takes responsibility for any and all actions. In an emergency situation this style of briefing is decisive and positive and through delegation of specific tasks to the rest of the control team would see the emergency situation brought under control to a rapid and satisfactory conclusion. During aftermath investigations each and every action can be accounted for by one person whether right or wrong.

“Be prepared before it is too late”

we have all heard these well published wise words but the reality of it is that Emergency Management starts with the preparedness phase, this often is the combination of written documents (procedures) and practical experience levels of those given the job of implementing the procedures, all monitored by industry work place standards.

This level of preparedness and management changes as we as a business mature, the key to success is ensuring that our procedures, skills of personnel develop as quickly as our business does, or if it all goes wrong we are able to control the situation by preventing escalation, pick up the pieces as quickly as possible, return to business as usual and learn from our experiences.

So how do we take that all important step to ensure our business, which is our people are safe and our business can continue without interruption or loss.

In the past the style of business and in particular the management of risk was seen as a more dictatorship style, “you must do this” now it is a more goal orientated style “this is how we want you to do it”.

Tell me of an industry that does not have work environments that are set up to minimize the risks & hazards to its people, environment and others not excluding the company or corporate image and reputation.

There are a number of Emergency Management, Incident Command, Business Continuity programs out there that we can share with you, we are also able to look at your business and identify which one will work for you and suit your needs.
