Revisiting the effectiveness of base crisis response strategies in comparison of reputation management crisis responses
Unformatted Document Text:  Revisiting the effectiveness of base crisis response strategies 14 responsibility was the highest when the base response strategy was used alone (M = 6.5, SD = .8), whereas it was the lowest when the combination of base and denial strategies (M = 5.7, SD = 1.0) was used (see Table 2 for other strategies). The LSD post-hoc tests revealed that in the preventable crisis type, the combination of base and denial response strategies was significantly more effective than the combination of the base and rebuilding strategies in lowering attribution of crisis responsibility levels (p < .01). In addition, when the combination of base and denial strategies was used, participants blamed the company significantly less than when the base strategy was employed alone (p < .005).
