PwC India's findings of the first-ever India Crisis Survey

Crisis Preparedness: An imperative to stay competitive

We are pleased to present PwC India's findings of the first-ever India Crisis Survey. Our first-of-its-kind report presents cutting-edge insights into crisis management based on the experiences of some of the largest organisations in India. We heard from senior executives from 25 industries, 80% of whom have experienced at least one crisis in the past 5 years. We analysed whether their organisations were prepared to respond to crisis and the impact of crisis on their organisation and ecosystem.

Instead of “admiring the problem”, we’ve used this data as a springboard to reverse-engineer a successful crisis response. We looked at the companies that self-identified as having emerged stronger from their worst crisis – and compared them to those that did not fare as well.

A crisis is an opportunity to emerge stronger: 42% of leaders who had already faced a major crisis in the past 5 years said they were “in a better place” post crisis — with some even reporting revenue growth as a direct result of their management of the crisis.

What did these organisations do differently? What crucial preparedness steps did they take that led to their positive outcomes? Can crisis actually be a positive experience… even one that can yield competitive advantage?

Yes, it can. And you don’t have to go through a crisis to learn how.

Why your people hold the key to crisis outcomes

A crisis can touch so many aspects of an organization — from its financial, legal, and competitive standing to its technology, processes, and reputation. What too often gets overlooked is the human factor. Read on to learn more.
