    In today�s highly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA; Johansen, 2012) world, successful business leaders understand that experiencing an organizational crisis is a matter of when, not if. Organizational leaders� communication and actions before, during, and after a crisis determine if the organization survives, is able to recover, and ultimately utilize the crisis as an opportunity for growth. This course takes a message-centered approach to the study of crisis communication. The purpose of this course is to explore the role of communication and strategic communication practices throughout the three stages of crisis management. Both theoretical and applied research areas are considered to provide an overview of the established and emerging perspectives on risk and crisis from the communication perspective.
