ABSTRACT

Reflecting Pool Podcast: Adaptive SOPs [audio]   [open html - 76KB]

"Standard operating procedures (SOPs) guide emergency responders in a crisis, providing predetermined steps to manage anticipated events. However, modern disasters often manifest as complex systems and produce unanticipated outcomes. As a consequence, the application of prediction-dependent SOPs to prediction-defiant scenarios yields ineffective emergency management. Harwood's research proposes two practical, executable means of integrating adaptability into SOP-driven crisis response: the use of prompts and crisis co-pilots. Both of which help an emergency responder identify divergence from predicted behavior and encourage adaptation in the field." This audio has a running time of 11 minutes and 4 seconds.
