Disaster – A diagnosis of modern business.pdf
„DISASTER – A Diagnosis of Modern Business“ by Crocon & Friends is a hilarious satirical picture book for business and all other people created as an antidote to today’s state of the business world. Fighting all kinds of aspects of business situations, armed with unbeatable spirit, laughter and positivity, the book remains optimistic and full of hope that things can be better (because it once was!). Guidance and therapy to today’s grey businessmen, it is an attempt to awaken us all from lethargy and bad habits of today’s way of doing business. It is a reminder and an alarm, motivation and pointer to change.
WHAT EXACTLY IS „DISASTER“?
A picture book for business people is, as any other picture book, an educational book. Guidance and therapy to today’s grey businessmen, it is an attempt to awaken us all from lethargy and bad habits of today’s way of doing business. It is a reminder and an alarm, motivation and pointer to change. Created out of a decades long business experience and real daily situations, the idea of a “picture book for businessmen” was born and cultivated by Crocon CEO Linda Poščić Borovac.
Through the concept of a clinic meant to treat damaged business people, in eight main sections it unapologetically dissects and makes fun of the issues we isolated as the most problematic: the complete attack on our minds by useless information, pressures and superficial distractions leading to burnout; the toxic climates throughout most organisations; the crippling globalisation; the extinction of business manners and principles; the detrimental reign of the ego; the cancer of entrepreneurship – bureaucracy within public services. As we fight the situation with relentless humor, we remain positive and hopeful that it can be better (because it used to be!) so we also provide colourful advice, some perspective and a few inspirational stories of those good business people, the so-called doctors of business, actually based on our real business partners.
WHAT’S THE PROBLEM, YOU ASK?
The problem our picture book colourfully and unmistakably exposes is the illness of today’s business world. Why is the point of business imprisoned by forms, questionnaires, contracts? Why do we spend 15+ years in an educational system that is not preparing us for life?Why do we pay lazy, irresponsible people in real money when the work they do is fake? Why are relationships between business partners dying out and a person’s word means less and less? Why are we complicating everything instead of simplifying? Why did we forget to truly listen?
SO , WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT IT?
This project aims to change perceptions and take down stereotypes, to inspire and reshape minds and habits. In a cheerful and deceivingly simple manner we want to get you to think about serious issues facing today’s business world, in humble hopes of starting a change within at least one of our readers. Our tools are our HUMOR and our SPIRIT, because what else is there if you don’t want to become grey people? We are pointing our finger at the wounds of the sick world, opening eyes, refusing to let this be ignored, relentlessly proving that it can and MUST be better than this. This EFFORT is all anyone can ask for and the key to shaking the status quo. What we do is we ask the questions and refuse to let this just quietly be.
AUTHORSHIP – WHO IS BEHIND IT?
The book was once imagined and now realized by Linda Poščić Borovac together with Ana Zoričić from company Crocon Ltd from Kastav, Croatia. Winners of many international awards for our creative works, some of the most notable being the Stevie Awards for Women in Business we received in New York City in 2015. and more recently Creators for Centuries recognition and the Hermes Creative Award, we have been making original creative content under our brand Authentic & Certified by Crocon for years.
Born out of decades long experience in international business waters and our need to shine a light and thank the good ones, the A&C brand is our way of contributing to the business culture by tirelessly spreading our message and values we hold close to our company heart – simplicity, proactivity, positivity and good communication.
WHO NEEDS THIS?This book is meant for business people who are simultaneously the cause and the product of today’s way of doing business. It is also meant for anyone who is tired of this way of living and by soaking up these pages wants to just hang out with people on the same wavelength, to laugh and to grab a healthy dose of inspiration and enthusiasm. Gift it to your business partners, employees, friends, anyone you come across that valuesinsightfulness, good fun and out of the box concepts and show them you are awake and ready for a new perception.

“Very rarely does something surprise you in a way that you don’t know what’s hiding behind the next page. In any case, it’s not predictable, which reminds me of Tarantino’s films, only when we started discovering them. Expect the unexpected.”
“Introduce as an almanac for all students and future managers. Good job! Creativity is the most valuable thing we have.”
“The book is hilarious! I will not be diagnosed with PM Clinic, I will be diagnosed by a tram driver because I laugh nonstop while reading “DISASTER”, and laughing out loud is no longer an acceptable pattern of behavior in society.”
Absence of coping strategies is also a part of vulnerability and has to be considered in vulnerability assessment e.g. living in hazard prone locations like ...

A study by FEMA pointed out the striking statistic that a small business which sustains downtime due to a natural disaster has only a 60% chance of surviving.That means that four out of ten businesses who experience loss of business will not reopen their doors. Therefore, it stands to reason that every business owner should be taking steps to mitigate loss should there be a problem.
The RTO is the maximum amount of time, following a disaster, for the business to recover its files from backup storage and resume normal operations.
