Simulating a Crisis


Dan Laufer seeks crisis management simulations for use in class

I have been using the following simulation in my Crisis Management courses over the past few years. It has been very effective, but unfortunately Darden has stopped selling the simulation:

Crisis Management Simulation – Organizational Misdeeds: Darden Case: UVA-OB-0790S – Authors: Erika Hayes James; Gerry Yemen Origin: Published: 10/6/2003

I would greatly appreciate your suggestions for other Crisis Management simulations. I find simulations to be very useful in my crisis management courses, especially for MBA and EMBA students. Simulations involving group work are especially effective.

Best regards,
