In our age of instant social media reactions, large bureaucratic organizations are struggling to respond quickly enough. Look at Boeing’s troubles with their 737 MAX planes.

When your business needs to respond to a crisis, do it honestly, promptly and appropriately, but leave room for the truth to surface.
