A number of people have asked me about useful teaching material related to Global Product Harm Crises, especially in the aftermath of a number of recent high profile crises including Fonterra involving milk powder and Toyota involving cars linked to sudden acceleration. Both of these crises impacted consumers in multiple countries.  Below are two articles related to the topic of global product harm crises:

1) Laufer, Daniel “Incorporating a Global Perspective in Teaching Crisis Management” AIB Insights Vol 12(2) (2012).

2) Laufer, Daniel. “How Should a Global Brand Manager Respond to an Ambiguous Product-Harm Crisis?   Advances in International Marketing. 2012 Vol 23.

I hope you find the articles useful in teaching this important topic.
