The question to address is the following: One of the challenges inherent in studying crisis is that academics are not in agreement about the basic definitions. For example, Pearson and Clair (1998: 60) define crisis as: A low-probability, high-impact event that threatens the viability of the organization and is characterized by ambiguity of cause, effect, and means of resolution, as well as by a belief that decisions must be made swiftly. However, Coombs (2007: 2-3) states: A crisis is the perception of an unpredictable event that threatens important expectancies of stakeholders and can seriously impact an organization’s performance and generate negative outcomes. Each of these definitions has clear pros and cons for crisis management education. Support your answer with real-world examples.
