Government authorities are vulnerable to external threats over which they have no control, however, it is possible to manage the impacts of these threats if the capacity and strategic flexibility to crisis manage are put in place to mitigate potential outcomes: e-readiness lies at the centre of this approach. Given the multiple and diverse aspects to crisis management, what might enhance the relationship between crisis management and strategic flexibility and how is Bahrain’s e-readiness placed to respond?
The webinar was presented by Dr. Sh. Mohamed bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Head of Monitoring & Evaluation at the Directorate of Crime Prevention, Ministry of Interior, on Wednesday 28th July at 11am (Bahrain-time).
