Chapter 5 - Planning and decision making. After you have mastered the material in this chapter, you will be able to: Describe the different levels of planning in an organization; explain the difference between strategic, tactical, operating, and unit plans; outline the value of simple-use plans, standing plans, and contingency plans;...
Water utilities have a long history of planning in preparation for emergencies,
particularly natural disasters. But contingency and emergency planning has taken on a
new dimension with current concern about potential threats to water system security. The
range of crises that have become plausible has expanded, and utilities now are
considering more robust security procedures and emergency plans than they have
historically had in place. When it comes to ensuring a water system’s security, few
utilities, regardless of size or geographic location, can function independently.
Reduce hiv risk and vulnerability in settings of humanitarian concern. Contingency plans for essential HIV
services should be part of national HIV plans in order to ensure continuity of HIV treatment and care in
settings of humanitarian concern, including buffer stocks of essential medicines and commodities (including
antiretroviral medicines, condoms, diagnostic assays, opioid analgesics and sterile injecting supplies).
Over the past decade, executives have witnessed an explosion of management tools
such as Customer Relationship Management, Scenario and Contingency Planning,
and the Balanced Scorecard. Demands of increasing competition in the global
marketplace are driving the explosion, while accelerated, lower-cost delivery systems
for ideas and information have enabled it. Today the sheer volume of ideas can
overwhelm a management team.
This guide is intended to establish authoritative guidance on the application of
GIS in civil protection, to assist users in the specification, acquisition and
maintenance of a GIS and to stimulate debate in the user community about
the future development and application of GIS and related technologies.
The primary audience is anticipated to be staff in Category One responders
identified in the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, most notably in Local Authority
Emergency Planning Units.
The NIMS provides a set of standardized organizational structures—such as the Incident
Command System (ICS), multi-agency coordination systems, and public information
systems—as well as requirements for processes, procedures, and systems designed to
improve interoperability among jurisdictions and disciplines in various areas, to include:
training; resource management; personnel qualification and certification; equipment
certification; communications and information management; technology support; and
continuous system improvement.
When planning how to reduce the threat of global warming and how to adapt to it, a
very important piece of information is how intense the change will be. That implies
estimating the trends of future concentrations of greenhouse gasses, and the potential
future changes in temperature, precipitation, storm events and other climatic
variables. These predictions are important not only to estimate the magnitude of the
changes, but also to determine the uncertainty surrounding them.
For many organizations their dependence on information systems, both within the company
and networked up and down their supply chain, is now business critical. Any sustained loss
of availability of these systems would threaten the very existence of the business.
Security is a holistic issue. Vulnerabilities in physical, personnel and electronic
security all need to be addressed with equal commitment. Too many businesses still focus
on physical security without sustaining even basic precautions in personnel and electronic
The first concern with contingency planning is to identify times when the event may place
strains on the existing public safety agencies. Even in the earliest stages of planning, you
should begin also to make contingency plans. These plans should consider licensing and
regulations, emergency response issues, identifying persons responsible for particular types
of hazards and risks, resources and expenses, and jurisdictions. Planning ahead reduces
stress for organizers and promoters during the event, if an incident occurs that requires
public agencies to work together.
In order to support building engineering physicists in practice, we must
develop new centres in universities and new funding mechanisms to support
original and applied research into building energy performance. The
dissemination of real world building performance information capable of being
benchmarked, rather than marketing misinformation will not just inform future
low carbon building designs, but also allow for the development of robust
Pablo Picasso’s first piece titled Head of a Woman was slightly larger
than one foot high and later served as the inspiration for the monumen-
tal sculpture at Princeton. This earlier work was
constructed of cutout and folded sheet metal that was painted.
Carl Nesjar, a Norwegian artist, agreed to serve as intermediary with
Picasso in the negotiations that would lead to the acquisition of a major
sculpture for the Putnam Memorial Collection.
The Pest Risk Analysis on South American Leaf Blight, The Contingency Plan for South American Leaf
Blight of Rubber and the Model Work Plan for the Importation of Budded Stumps or Budwood of Hevea are
supporting documents for the implementation of the Regional Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 7 –
Guidelines for Protection against South American Leaf Blight of Rubber. These documents reflect the most
up-to-date progress of APPPC in terms of management of SALB and are essential references for protection
against SALB in Asia and Pacific region.
When ESG reviewed EMC’s server, storage, and data center efficiency efforts in 2009, it was clear that EMC had
developed a practical blueprint for improving efficiency, effectiveness, and environmental sustainability through
existing technologies and best practices. Among the keys to success we identified were a strategic vision, sound
business planning processes, executive-level buy-in, and access to EMC’s own professional services engagements.
Recent experiences in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Balkans have highlighted the importance of environmental considerations. These range from protecting soldier health and disposing of hazardous waste to building water supply systems and other activities that help achieve national goals in the post-conflict phase of contingency
Uganda has a comprehensive paper-based Health Management Information System (HMIS), and a
computerized web-based system is currently being developed (District Health Information System
[DHIS2]). Although the focus of the new system is on the public sector, there is an opportunity to
extend to the private sector. Uganda went through a significant process recently of harmonizing and
streamlining its HMIS forms, with the MoH leading the effort and working with multiple partners. This
provides an opportunity to engage with partners who continue to use forms outside this system.
