In situations of crisis and uncertain markets, a cool head and a calm hand are essential. Yet, extreme stress deteriorates our rational decision making abilities. Research shows, depending on coping strategies of the management some companies survive crisis, stronger than they were before, while others fail. Companies are constantly challenged to adjust to changing market conditions. Lessons learned from military and first responders are useful also for companies, challenged by uncertainty.
