The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each unit.
Using the CPG and other sources, conduct whatever research is necessary to understand scenario-based, function-based, and capabilities-based planning approaches. To understand the strengths/weaknesses/opportunities/threats (SWOT) analysis planning approach, use any explanatory source that you find, readily available via the Internet. To fully understand all of these approaches, you will need to research other sources to aid you in engaging in the discussion below; find and reference at least three additional resources that you used and explain what value they added to your understanding.
In 4–5 paragraphs, address the following:
List and describe each of the four planning approaches. For each one explain or provide the following:
How this approach is designed
For what purposes this approach is most commonly used
An example of planning requirements for which this approach would not be ideal
Using any two or more of the planning approaches you have just described and discussed, explain how these might be combined to become useful as a hybrid approach. If you choose a hybrid approach that is not a result of your own original thought, properly cite from where you derived the model.
Describe in detail this existing or proposed hybrid approach. Also explain why you believe the hybrid is superior to any single approach.
Provide and discuss at least two illustrations (real or hypothetical) of how and when your selected or newly proposed hybrid planning approach would be the best choice for emergency planning.
Post a new topic to the Discussion Board that contains your responses to the above questions.
Comment on at least two other students’ posts.
