Abstract:

Manager's decision capabilities can be improved through a better understanding of a system's inter-dependability. Communication and planning during non-emergency periods enable managers and engineers to review the impacts that would be expected during several scenarios, and what system improvements could be made to minimize those impacts. The plan that DC WASA developed helped managers achieve their Strategic Goal for improving their Technical Performance and meeting their objective of developing a Crises Communication Plan.
