how do you ensure that people with the necessary skills and resolve (not necessarily individually, but certainly collectively) are where they need to be in a time of crisis?

Perhaps what is needed in times of crisis is a mechanism to bring in additional expertise from business and academia and international bodies, explicitly including non-mainstream views,  and give them a mandate to jointly hash out the options and consequences with top political leaders, with all deliberations recorded and to be published within one year.
