The Supercharged Management System

ICSbuttonEvery cultural repository needs two management structures: the day-to-day, business-as-usual hierarchy, and a “supercharged” management structure that takes over temporarily during a crisis or whenever events threaten to overwhelm normal business routines. Emergency responders have used just such a supercharged structure for years: the Incident Command System (ICS). Whether you are preparing for fires and floods—or planning a major public event—the Incident Command System is a proven management tool that safeguards lives, property, and priceless collections. Presenter, David W. Carmicheal, shared with participants how to put ICS to use in cultural organizations in this hour-long webinar, The Supercharged Management System: Applying the Incident Command System in Cultural Repositories.
