Leaders in the public sector must create value through an active and strategic process of mission definition, stakeholder management and capacity development. This challenge is made much more difficult in times of crisis. This talk presents a framework for strategic management, and explores it using the dramatic case of Hurricane Katrina in the US in 2005.
