BP's oil spill, Volkswagen's tampered software and Rabobank's Libor affair. More and more scandals come to light and the confidence in organizations is historically low.

This handbook presents a new method: TACTICS. This is a step-by-step method to work on a meaningful and credible image.

The comprehensive website helps teachers to optimally use the book and offers students additional practice materials. It helps professionals to examine their field from a current perspective.
