I understand a crisis is most of the time a complete shock but what I do not understand is that these major businesses (colleges included) do not have a plan for when these surprises arise. I guarantee you that now every college has a sex scandal crisis management plan now after seeing what happened to Penn State and I’m sure they could take a few pointers from what happened to Tiger as well. It is a shame that from now on one of the greatest golfers to ever live, Tiger Woods’ name will now be included when talking about sex scandals crisis management.
