PIVoTAL Crisis Response

A small team focused on the state of the art of crisis response.

PIVoTAL Crisis Response is a faction within the Spartan9 Group that focuses on the design and delivery of world-class crisis response products and services, including advice, training and exercises.

With many years, projects and passport stamps behind us, we've learned the value of having an effective crisis response capability.

What is an effective crisis response capability? At its foundation, an effective crisis response capability a combination of effective preparation, planning, training and exercising.

On top of these activities, effective crisis response also demands a specific attitude and mindset. We teach this mindset during our training and reinforce it during our exercises.

Risk management for expeditions to higher-risk locations.

Last year we started leveraging our experience to advise companies who lead expeditions into remote and higher-risk locations.

We've built a number of unique tools and processes designed to make expeidtion planning simpler, more consistent, and more robust from a risk management perspective.

This has enabled us to bake in risk management to all stages of expedition planning, from selecting team leaders to selecting which stove to use.

Most importantly, our processes are designed not to impinge on the expedition experience. It's possible for expedition members to experience a good adventure without them being exposed to unecessary, unknown, and unplanned risk.
