This fully updated third edition of Public Relations Strategy is designed to introduce readers to the significance of public relations management as a core activity in developing and sustaining corporate strategy. The book links organizational PR to models and theories of strategic management, and explores the ways in which globalization and the internet impact on best practice.
Public Relations Strategy speaks to seasoned public relations practitioners and students who, although aware of the tactical requirements of day-to-day professional life (for example, media relations, trade shows, publicity events, external publication production), struggle with issues related to overall commercial policies and planning. The book addresses eight critical areas.
PR's role within strategic and reputation management
the governance role of PR within organizations
attaining and maintaining company reputation
internal communication and crisis management
integrating marketing plans within overall PR strategy
online/offline stakeholder relations, especially media
research matters - exploration and evidence
managing ethics and evaluation of PR programmes
Complete with new, international case studies illustrating strategic links between PR and management, this edition is a useful resource for the thinking practitioner's library, as well as an invaluable learning tool for students undertaking university management courses or CIPR qualifying examinations.
