In the past, a business’s reputation was made slowly over a long period of time – often years. Public opinion was largely formed through word of mouth. News stories quickly faded from the limelight – and negative press could be managed effectively with the help of public relations professionals.
In today’s fast-moving world, however, the need to escalate an issue and communicate rapidly and succinctly is critical for an organization to survive. It is necessary for an organization to rapidly assess and respond to reputation challenges as they arise.
