Disasters, whether natural or human-made, pose severe threats to communities worldwide. Addressing these challenges necessitates a proactive and systematic approach. This research explores the application of strategic management principles in disaster mitigation, aiming to assess their comparative effectiveness, identify key components and best practices, understand their influence on disaster resilience at various levels, and uncover primary challenges and barriers faced during implementation. This study seeks to provide insights into the effectiveness of strategic management approaches compared to traditional methods, delineate essential components and best practices, elucidate their impact on disaster resilience at different levels, and highlight challenges faced by organizations and governments in their implementation. This qualitative research utilizes secondary data from academic journals, focusing on recent scholarly work published within the last five years. It employs content analysis to extract relevant findings from existing research. Initial findings suggest that strategic management approaches offer a promising framework for disaster mitigation, promoting proactive risk assessment, efficient resource allocation, and adaptability. However, challenges related to resource constraints, resistance to change, and coordination complexities persist.The adoption of strategic management principles holds potential in enhancing disaster mitigation efforts, but effective implementation necessitates overcoming significant challenges. A comprehensive understanding of key components, best practices, and their influence on resilience is critical for building more resilient communities and organizations.
