The AGG has great experience of designing crisis management programmes, and in advising during the course of an actual crisis. All contingencies can be planned for, from fire damage to terrorist attack and by having an up to date and validated contingency plan, organisations are able to minimise the losses caused by a crisis. The AGG crisis planning team works with the client to assess the company’s areas of vulnerability, agree the corporate aims and objectives, identify potential participants and their agendas, prepare contingency plans, and allocate resources. Based on our extensive experience in crisis planning, we can assist in advising on the best structure of a crisis management team and help to draw up a comprehensive crisis management plan to deal with a wide range of issues.
The AGG assists companies, governments and commercial organisations with strategic advice and services looking to make the most of international opportunities by reducing risk. We create effective ways of overcoming the security threats and challenges that can have a negative effect on potential success. Our Consulting division provides government and private sector clients with strategic advisory services to help manage and reduce key non-financial risks. Our approach is focused at the senior decision-making level to enable clients to understand their critical risks, identify priorities, and make informed choices about where to invest limited resources to manage and reduce those risks. Our deep experience in unstable and volatile parts of the world provides us with a unique capability to support our clients at a strategic level in these environments.
The core areas of consultancy work are:
Strategic security advice: We advise governments and organisations to identify key security related risks and help develop solutions to manage them. Our approach is wide ranging, encompassing solutions focused on improving traditional security as well as long-term stability. Our work focuses on the security system as a whole and involves developing security policy, liaising with relevant authorities, and contingency planning.
Crisis management strategy and planning: We support both government and private organisations to develop crisis management strategy and planning. We start by examining existing strategy and structure, assessing its appropriate effectiveness, before developing an appropriate structure and process to embed crisis management capability. Our perspective is strategic, spanning organisational readiness, prevention, response and recovery. In this context, we develop detailed incident management plans in high value and risk areas for a client.
Market entry strategy: Entering a new market involves a good understanding of the risks involved and implementing appropriate counter-measures. By seizing the opportunity and understanding and mitigating key risks the AGG help clients take advantage of the opportunity.
