Issues Management

Issues management involves creating and implementing effective strategies to overcome existing or potential challenges that could jeopardize even the best managed corporations and their business objectives. The most effective issues management involves continued monitoring of public policy activity, in order to anticipate critical shifts in government activities and react appropriately.
